Just back from another failed interview because my nerves get the better of me and I need to get over this. I've been at my current school for 5 years and I always get good feedback from lesson observations, with the last OfSTED rating me as good. However, my husband will be relocating with his job after Christmas and so I need to get a teaching job in the area where we will be living. My application/covering letters get me the interview, but as soon as I get into the classroom to do the observed lesson I go to pieces, forget to follow the lesson plan and only delver half of what I intended. This last interview, I got very helpful feedback from the head who said that the plan and the objectives and outcomes of the lesson were good and something he would be pleased to see in his school, but that I didn't deliver what was on paper. He acknowledged that it seemed to be my nerves but that he could not take a risk and offer me the position in case it wasn't because I was nervous. I got the job at the school I am in now because I was long term supply and then got offered a permanent position so there was no interview lesson to do. I had been bullied by the head at the school before this one and needed counselling and CBT to get over it. I think this is why I become a gibbering wreck whenever I encounter unfamiliar SLT. Not sure if anyone can offer me advice, but if there are any tips to help me overcome this, then I would be grateful for your help.
