Hi all

Not sure if in the right place.

I’ve got a virtual interview on 18/8 for LSA at secondary school they’ve said I’ll have a task to complete before.

Any pointers, advice etc never had anything like this I was feeling confident and now not so much.

I have worked in primary as smsa and after school club for 5 years and prior to this was a PCSO

Main stream or SEND? Do you know what year class you'd ben in? Different approaches. Google LSA/TA interview tasks..might be design a poster for KS3 English literature class.. Youd need to know books school uses.. E. G Which Shakespeare.

Might be a mock lesson scenario and how you could support the students during that time.

You will be fine OP. You have experience. You understand the process of support at KS2 which will be beneficial at KS3. Perhaps think about how you might differentiate a written task to make it more accessible for a student with dyslexia. It is possible they will give you a worksheet and ask how you could adapt it.
Schools will all be advertising posts come September.
