I have my first PGCE interview in two weeks and I want to make sure I am as prepared as possible. I won't ask for any specific advice as I know I need to plan my activities/answers myself but I was hoping someone could reassure me that I have interpreted the tasks correctly. I am very nervous as it's a long time since I interviewed for a job and I've never had an interview as formal as this. 1. I need to deliver a short classroom based teaching/interaction activity to a small group of year 7 or year 8 pupils. It says 'you can choose any aspect of your subject, you are not limited in terms of subject or content'. My initial thought was that I should choose a topic that is covered by the KS3 curriculum but I won't know what they have covered so far. Would I be better to choose something that is related to the KS3 curriculum but should be new to the students or go with something from the curriculum and just be prepared to adapt my plan depending on their current knowledge? Are they looking at how well you engage students or plan and direct activities more than the content? I only have 10-15 minutes so I don't want to try anything too ambitious but obviously I want the students to enjoy the session and learn something. 2. I have to complete a subject audit before I attend the interview and indicate for each topic whether I have a good understanding/adequate understanding or inadequate understanding. I assume they are expecting there to be gaps in your knowledge at this stage and, if I do not feel I have sufficient understanding to teach the topic right now, then I should tick inadequate. For example, I don't feel I could teach all of the energy, electricity and forces topic without doing more reading/work which I fully intend to do by September. I teach GCSE Biology and I have tutored GCSE students in biology, chemistry and physics so I have been through all the topics relatively recently but I'm less confident with some areas. Thanks, Sarah.
