    I'm slightly concerned about the 'small item' thing! In the letter it says it's just meant to help you answer the first question but what kind of thing are they expecting us to bring? Hmmm..

    I had an interview at Leeds Met & took a packet of seeds, and talked about how they could be used in different areas of learning. Linked them to a 'Jack & the beanstalk' theme.

    Good Luck

    Hey I had an interview at Leeds Met last week and still not heard anything back yet. Just wondering how long it took other people to find out whether they'd been accepted or not?

    Thanks

    I had my interview last year, I'm the comment above lol. The Leeds Met interview was my most relaxed interview. Just try and speak in a confident and clear way and practice your presentation a lot. When they say 'have you got any questions?' ask at least one question even if it's 'What is the max distance we have to travel for placement?', asking questions shows your commitment and interest. Also in the group discussion make sure you do discuss a lot but not too much because that shows that you aren't letting anyone else have a chance speaking, show that you can also listen to other people's ideas; overall just showing that your involved.
    good with your interview

    I've got my interview on the 26th Feb and I have absolutely no idea what to take to the interview! I am taking a book to my other interviews as it can be linked to many areas of the curriculum but I don't know if they would class that as a small object / artefact?
