    I just wanted to ask were you guys allowed to use your notes during the interview ? Or during the test or was everything taken away from you? Plus did you do the lesson there or beforehand ?

    I just want to ask you did you use any notes during your written test ? And did you bring in a lesson or you prepared one there ?

    I have an interview for the Primary English post with MOE in Manchester at the end of the month. I was just looking for some general advise on what type of questions I can expect in the test. I received an email stating that the test will include themes of grammar, phonics, science etc. Any help/advise is much appreciated.

    I had my interview March for same post there was a lesson plan and rationale to write 5 questions on noun types a question on how you would teach reading. I strongly advice go with a lesson plan in mind I took p.p. print out and talked through it in interview they are strong on positive behaviour so include lots of that in L.P. and interview. Interview was about 10min general questions. I hope this helps. Good luck see you in the sun.

    when you sent off your documents, how old was your DBS, I had to ask my current school to apply for a new DBS because my agency said the MOE require one less than 6 months old, was this the case with you??

    Sorry I forgot to add the document that came with the job offer also stated DBS to be within a year so i would double check the 6 month date.
  8. Same boat, mines's tomorrow morning. For the PE graduate position, do you have to do a lesson plan and micro-teach or present them with how you would tackle explaining a technical term?

    I had mine on the 23rd and haven't heard yet either. I contacted my agency and they said it can take a while. What position were you applying for?

    Have you found out about when your mobilisation date is?

    rumshakhalid New commenter

    Ohh okay. That makes sense. Thanks Mr_Frosty, otherwise I was thinking that something could have been wrong.

    Hi everyone, who knows their mobilisation date and how in advance did you know? I read somewhere that some people only know their mobilisation date, a week before they fly out...
