What are the main things I should know when it comes to an interview?

Watercress99 · 05/06/2021 23:32

So I’m prepping for an interview at the moment.

I’ve focused on the questions that I’m sure will be asked:

  • why do you want to be a teacher
    -why this year group
    -what makes a good/bad lesson
    -assessment strategies
    -motivating reluctant students.
    -motivating sen/EAL
  • making learning accessible
    -gifted and talented
  • safeguarding
    -behaviour policy

    I’m a bit stuck on what to look at for the school. I’ve looked at: ethos, curriculum, how they plan and policies. What more can I do? Or do you think this seems enough. I feel so stressed and nervous as it’s my first one

I would think that looking up the stats for the school might help. So having a general idea of their % of high, average, low attainers, and their SEN and their PP. Knowing their, in your case English, GCSE results. If their Ofsted was recent did the English department get a mention.

I had an interview last week and they asked about progression - how to show it over lessons etc.

They also asked how to stretch GDS and MC children.

Good luck!

Safeguarding policy, times you have dealt with difficult team members, how do you manage a work/life balance, progression, what book would you love to teach and tie this in to the national curriculum and wider approaches such as lgbtq+/British values/semh etc.
