It's always nice to go smartly dressed even if it is in the school that he's been in volunteering, shows that an effort has been made. Not sure about a complete suit, perhaps a nice shirt and trousers, I wouldn't go with a tie or anything.
can I hijack the thread please? My DH would love to get a TA job before maybe doing teacher training. How easy was it for your DH (and any others) to get the job? i.e. had he done any voluntary work etc or was his experience having kids (which is all my DH currently can say) any thoughts/advise would be great,
It was pretty easy in terms of the interview process in the end - it was the first job he applied for!
We translated all his current employment skills to match what they were looking for on application - i.e. working under own initiative, dealing with stressful situations etc which was pretty easy too.
What I think made a big difference tho was that he has been volunteering at a local school for two full days a week since April and taking the afterschool sports club - the headmistress gave him an absolutely glowing reference! Plus he had already enrolled for a cache course at the local college (starting September) which kind of showed how serious he was
TBH what the school seem to have been looking for more than tons of experience was energy and enthusiasm which my DP has in spades!
Good luck to your DH - I'd say gor for it. Schools are crying out for male TAs
