Theo Griff’s book and interview advice

    I’ve recently bought ‘Interview for a Teaching Job’ by Theo Griff, which has really helped me in recent interview preparations. Thank you so much, @TheoGriff !

    I am in the independent sector. I feel that I would very much appreciate some face-to-face interview advice from an education professional who does not know me and who will be honest with me about any skills I should develop. Can anyone recommend where I could go to achieve this?

    Gosh you have a long memory, Theo hasn't been the resident advisor for several years now and I don't believe she even frequents the site anymore.

    I know tes used to run interview advice courses with their advisors / forum hosts, but I don't think they do anymore.

    Theo has two books on Amazon: Applying for a teaching job and Interviews for a teaching job. They are excellent.

    @Lara mfl 05 I think Theo might still be around sometimes - I believe she last posted in March 2019. Very sadly she isn’t an advisor here any more - her advice was always so helpful.
    Thank you very much for your suggestion of TES courses - I will investigate!

    I previewed one of her books before publication, highly recommend.

    Some recent posts have asked about interview advice. I’d recommend Theo’s book!

    If you’re going through the application and interview process, I recommend you read this book.

    Theo is on Twitter though- a good way of thanking her if, like many of us, we’ve read and taken onboard her advice over the years!

    @Northhead Thank you for letting us know! This book would answer the questions of so many posters on the Jobseekers board!
