    I have an interview tomorrow for a school from Qatar, I have asked them if I need to bring anything and they said I didn't. Just wondering if anyone would advise taking anything in particular along?

    The great and good Harry Deelman, of Search Associates and trouser-lending fame, was a fan of teaching portfolios. I have written about this topic several times, so perhaps the OP should do something strange and technical called a "search".

    But then of course the OP has already contacted her interviewers to be and been told that there is no need to bring anything, whyfore then is this person even wasting time in asking redundant questions?
    Mind you it does give those from Shanghai another blank canvas to repeat what has been known by many experienced overseas teachers since at least 2004......

    A folder with examples of student work, classroom displays or any press articles. One candidate had put together a power-point presentation on different lessons he had taught; another had a number of slides on student art work. That makes it all come to life and allows you to lead during some of the interview as you can demonstrate your suitability for the post.
