PGCE Design Technology Huddersfield University Interview

Discussion in 'Design and technology' started by Leyney, Jan 30, 2011.

  1. Hi,

    I've applied for the Design and Technology PGCE course at the University of Huddersfield and have an interview on Tuesday. Has anyone had an interview for this course? Can anyone help me with likely interview questions/interview content?

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    Thanks!

  4. Hi
    Im currently on a PGCE at Sheffield Hallam doing Textiles with Resistant Materials. To get on the course we had a group interview (which we didn't get told before hand it just said 'interview'), so be prepared to have your interview with other people. It depends on how your course is run, but they did this to see how well we coped speaking in front others. We had to take a portfolio of our previous work and do a presentation in front of the group (so talk about your strengths and why you chose the subject etc). They then asked us questions relating to education in general, so make sure you are up to date with what's happening with secondary ed.(e.g National Curriculum, the recent White Paper from the government etc.)
    If you're course is D&T in general make sure you are clued up on some issues relating to the subject (e.g motivating boys in the subject, creativity, S.E.N & EAL are a few ideas). If your course is specialised (e.g food), you might want to look at issues relating to the specialism (eg. Healthy School initiatives etc).
    We had to answer these questions as a group, so if thats the case for you get ready to fight to get a word in!
    Hope this helps. If you have any other questions I might be able to help.
    Good luck!

  5. Hiya,
    I have an interview coming up on the 6th of feb for PGCE in Sheffield Hallam.
    Im quite apprehensive to be honest. I have been researching into the design technology KS3 curriculum, but i feel as though the interview is goign to be a little intense.
    What are S.E.N AND EAL ? =\
    I have been putting together a portfolio of my past 3 years of work at univeristy, will this be enough to show, do i have to incorparate how i got to my final designs ect?

    Thanks
