    Is it usual to have some kind of interview task for a TA position? I've been interviewed for similar and always had to do a task, but just received a letter inviting me to interview but not mentioning any task.

    Primary or secondary?
    I went for secondary and wasn't asked to do a task but was intereviewed by some of the children who are often educated out of the classroom.
    I think the personality was more important than anything else as we spend a lot of time with these kids and need to be able to communicate with them and understand why they behave in certain ways.

    I also had a interview 4 years ago now with no task to do (primary). The actual interview was a bit full on though very thorough.

    Thanks for the replies.
    It's a primary TA role. At the viewing of the school it was sort of perfunctory compared to other tours I've had (although I liked the school and the HT) so I don't know if they are just looking to recruit less experienced people than the other roles I've gone for.
    I guess I'll find out on Fri!
