    Hi :)

    I have my first interview in 2 days time for a NQT post. I was just wondering what sort of questions they might ask as I've not had any experience for an interview yet and I'm sort of panicking!

    Thanks in advance x

    Have you looked at the interview tips thread in the welcome section at the top of the forum?
    I would expect them to ask the Why you question (which can be phrased an infinite number of ways) and the thread I mentioned has excellent advice on key points for this.
    What is relevant in your subject/stage? What about safeguarding (do a search for this on the forum and you'll get some ideas)?
    Curriculum development? AFL?
    Don't panic! You will know all the buzz words and be up to date with the policies and what not.
    Good luck x
     
  4. Hi, congratulations on the interview!
    I don't know if it's primary or secondary but I would say that some areas which you're likely to be asked about are personal strengths and weaknesses, planning, assessment for learning, behaviour management, working with other adults, inclusion and how you would get involved in the wider life of the school. Don't panic just think of the main things that you want the school to know about you and how you can put them across in the best possible way. [​IMG]
    Good luck for Tuesday!

    Thanks for the replies and for the advice! :)

    It's for primary school - KS1! I guess I just need to go over some questions tomorrow and try and prepare some answers.

    When you open the welcome and FAQ thread there is a link to the Interview Tips and Possible Interview Questions threads. It is in grey - just click on it.
