    I have an interview for a place on the Primary course at Institute of Education. In the interview email it doesn't mention anything about a presentation or a maths and english test - does anyone know what exactly we're expected to do on the day?

    I have an interview at Kings on Friday as well - for RE

    Do you think different subjects are put together for the group sessions or will we be in groups with just other applicants for our own subject? Anyone that has been through it before know?
    maybe thats what they've done grouped diff subjects together
    it's not really clear though the group discussion will it just be asking questions like they said??

    It's making me nervous everyone getting interviews, well done though!

    None of mine have even acknowledged my application, I am applying for 2 SCITT and 1 School Direct, don't know if that would make any difference, this whole process puts me on edge haha!

    Whats the difference between Scitt and school direct
    As far as I am aware, SCITT is a consortium of schools with one main school in which you learn (I am applying to do early years - so curriculum studies and creative learning) things like that, but you can be placed in any of the schools in the consortium (there are 12 in my top choice) for any of the 3 placements.

    I think it varies because one SCITT I am applying for has the training facilities in the lead school whereas the other SCITT has a training building within an industrial estate.

    School direct is mainly focused on one school who have more control over which training they decide to give you, but the place I have applied for is accredited by my top choice SCITT too so the schools will be similar.

    I think School Direct only has to place you in one other school, as you are like their member of staff.

    It varies a lot though dependent on where you have applied to

    I have an interview with IoE (for Secondary Physics with Maths) and they told me there would be a presentation and written piece, so if they haven't mentioned anything I guess it would be just a normal interview.

    I was going to apply for a SCITT and SD both accredited by the same provider, but after emailing them, they said that it would be a waste of a choice because they all go in the same pile!

    When I went to the open day for the SCITT they encouraged us to apply for both as it gives you more chance. They also said it goes to the same place but the person from the school direct place will look at the application alongside them.

    Plus I want to do early years and there is only 3 courses in my area that do it, so may as well apply for them all.

    Regarding the choice of training School Direct places sometimes choose to use Uni based training. I know my uni said some of the school direct schools they are working with will be signing up for their students to attend most of the PGCE, so it's very similar to the PGCE apart from you're based in one school.
