    Normally it's just a brief informal chat so you can wear anything you want, but you can't do anything wrong if your a bit smarter.

    Wear something like a dress or a top/shirt and a decent length skirt possibly with tights?

    I would say as smart as you can but still comfortable. I wore a wrap dress, black jacket, tights and flat black shoes and it was fine.

    Don't wear Jeans, infact anything less than smart casual (inc no jeans) will actually get you marked down.

    Usually smart trousers and top. That's what most people seem to wear. DON'T go in jeans or any other casual stuff, it does not create a good impression!

    I was advised to wear what you usually tend to wear when you go on placement days, i.e. smart trousers, nice top, flat shoes (or with a sensible heel!).

    I wore some smart wide-leg black trousers, a high neck jumper, and a purple velvet jacket. I bought some cheap black shoes with a low heel too.

    I wore a white satin blouse, a black pencil skirt, some black tights and a little red cardigan. Smart but not too smart! and I got in! So I must have looked okay. Don't dress over the top smart like in a full suit, because you look more business like than primary school teacher! Everyone seemed to be wearing black and grey at my interview except me! Hehe, so I felt like I stood out! But maybe that is a good thing Do not wear jeans!
