    I have an interview on Monday and the Inclusion centre. Letter states:
    There will be a short nurture task based around building social skills and could include some elements of literacy.
    I have emailed for clarification but the reply was that I will get time to prepare!

    I’m not sure if this means I have to plan and deliver the above session or will it mean I will be working with a group of children a long with the facilitator? I appreciate any advice.

    Thank you

    Hi AKhan007, I'm not sure what they mean either. I'm sort of thinking you will be leading the session, but they will give you the plan and time to look through it and decide how you'll deliver it. If that's the case, I'm sure it will be a very short and basic session. But I could be completely wrong - as you say, you could be supporting the facilitator. Whatever the case, what they will be looking at is your interaction with the children - how you speak and listen to them, make the session motivating and interesting for them, your body language and how you deal with any incidents which may occur.
    Best of luck with the interview and let us know how it goes.
