There are currently 3 TA roles at a school in the neighbouring village to me
Two in YR1 and one in YR2
I've applied but havnt been invited for interview as yet
However I want to be as prepared as possible
Are the interview questions pretty much generic? I've looked on the TES website for some examples
Also will I be required to carry out a task?
I'm rubbish at interviews so I really want to excel at the task part to show I am good with children

Normally you will be asked to take a group of children and complete a task that either the teacher has set or something you have been asked to prepare. If its something you've planned make sure you differentiate between the different abilities. Also they will probably ask you about safeguarding and your knowledge of some of the school's policies.

Good luck x
