PGCE INTERVIEW TIPS

Discussion in 'English' started by rachaeliow, Dec 7, 2011.

  1. I have a Secondary English PGCE interview coming up very soon and I wondered if anyone has anything extra special tips? I have to complete a 30 min writing task - any clues what on earth this may require? PLEASE HELP ASAP!

    My guess would be something which can subsequently be discussed with you: your own experience of English in a secondary school context; a memorable lesson; a text you especially enjoyed as a school student. It may even be about a teacher you admired or a school visit.
    I'd look on this as part of the interviewing package rather than a stand-alone task.
    Of course, it will also be a test of your ability to write engagingly.
    Hope it goes well.
