    I'd appreciate some help/ideas please folks. Got my first interview in years soon and as part of the interview I have been asked to present to pupils (upper primary) on the following topic -
    This school is a creative and innovative place to learn.... Why would I be the best candidate for the job?

    Freaking out so all help gratefully received. TIA

    Come on! Give us a break!

    How can we help you on this? We might not actually think that you ARE the best candidate! And even if you are, we don't know you so how can we say what the reasons are?


    Think of the aims of the appointment. How can you ensure that they are achieved. Off you go!

    And read the advice articles in the professional Advice Hub:

    I've included articles not relevant to you, for the benefit of others reading this.

    3. Preparing for Interview I suggest that you read these in this order

    Help, I've got an interview!*** The basic advice ***

    Teaching an observed lesson at interview

    Using mind-mapping for interviews*** The best-loved advice ***

    Tell us about yourself - dream or nightmare question?*** Read and note this ***

    Daft Interview Questions

    What shall I wear to the interview?

    Interviews – making a positive first impression

    How do you decide who to appoint?

    What excuse can I give for going to interview?

    Child Protection: the questions, NOT the answers

    A typical Child Protection Policy

    Two interviews and a dilemma

    Interview feedback - they blamed my experience, but they knew that when they shortlisted me!

    SLT interviews - possible questions

    In-tray exercises. Deputy Head

    Assistant Head interviews

    General interview questions

    Questions to ask at the end of your interview

    We have on here a very nice tradition that when you actually got a job, you started a brand-new thread (not adding it to this one - a brand-new thread) where you told us your good news. You call it Dear Theo - I got that job! and this gives everyone a chance to congratulate you. It also gives them hope and inspiration for their own jobseeking, to see you successful.

    If you see one of these threads, make sure you congratulate people!

    So I will end by saying that we look forward to seeing your Dear Theo - I got that job!

    Best Wishes

    So, you have to give a presentation to pupils on the topic: "This school is a creative and innovative place to learn.... Why would I be the best candidate for the job?"

    And you (presumably) can't see any irony in asking us for help - on a presentation about creativity and innovation...?
