    Ok, so my first choice has asked me to come for an interview woop!

    Now I was looking through what will happen during the interview and I don't see any major problems, granted it will take a lot of hard work to prepare for, but I knew that before I applied. However, whilst looking through the interview details one thing struck me, and I would really appreciate any advice or confirmation from those who have previously been for PGCE interviews. The thing is;

    "Observe appropriate dress code for a professional interview"

    I assume this means a suit and tie job? Or would smart trousers, shoes and shirt suffice?

    Thanks

    I'm making the assumption that yiou are male from the name and the suit and tie suggestion. From the detail i would say yes to a suit and tie combo - the males at my interview did this. Better to dress too smart than too casual i would say!

    Oh, and good luck

    There was a variety in what the guys wore at my interview. One guy was in jeans and a nice jumper and some were in suits. I'd always say to dress smarter to make a good impression, especially if they have made a point of saying how you should dress. Suit and tie definitely.

    sorry, i wasn't implying like 'oh go in jeans and a hoodie youll be fine' if thats what it came across as i was refering to the tie/no tie

    Thanks for the advice, probably going to go with the suit option. Might as well go well dressed for it

    it's easier to dress down when you're there than dress up. Go with full suit and tie, and if everyone else seems casual, you can whip your tie and jacket off before you go in.

    My role is you can never overdress but you can easily underdress for an interview!

    I also try and go suit to anything work related these days.

    The information I have received for my interview has not mentioned a dress-code, and there is no way that I would wear a suit anyway (I do not own one for a start) so it is casual/smart casual for me!
