    Congratulations on all your interviews -well done. Have you been following Theo's advice? I think it really focuses your mind and improves your applications.
    I cannot comment on interview lessons as they are not common practise in Scotland (alothough they should be IMHO). I just wanted to wish you luck and I look forward to reading your Dear Theo..I got a job post!

    Excellent! Very well done.
    It does sometimes happen, and you'll be given plenty of time. Just sit down and think what it might be, vaguely, and then gather together a big bag of things (esp examples of things at different levels) to take along with you to help you plan.
    And do read the advice in the Welcome thread in the 2 Interview clickables - they are really helpful.
    Best wishes

    I do Application and Interview one-to-ones, and also contribute to the Job Application Seminars. We look at application letters, executive summaries and interviews, with practical exercises that people really appreciate.
    I shall be doing the Win That Teaching Job seminar on Saturday February 25th

    Thanks everyone. I've now heard from the school where i taught today and i do have an interview for tomorrow. Problem i have now is if i'm offered the job i'll want to accept but it's a maternity and one of the ones on Monday is a permanent.

    Well i've heard from the school where i had an interview on Friday and was unsuccessful. I interviewed well but there was a stronger candidate.
    However, i've also heard from the school i didn't think i would make it to today and have been offered a maternity cover starting at Easter. Now i've just got to wait and hear from the permanent job so i can get back to them.

    Thanks Lara, although i now have deadline to give an answer by so if i don't hear from the other school i'll be accepting. I have phoned the school i was waiting to hear from but was told a decision had been made but the head was out and it wasn't their place to say.
