This is the very first time I've written here (although I've quite often read the discussions) so I'm not sure if I'm supposed to reply or create a new thread to get the best response?
Anyway, I am applying for a FT Primary PGCE for the second time- last year was unsuccessful at Manchester University because my Psychology degree was unsuitable and although I got an interview at Manchester met, I didn't get in
So this year I am determined to get a place! I have an interview at Roehampton on the 15th December which I am excited but extremely nervous about!
I was just wondering if anyone could give me advice on how to prep for this interview. They said to bring an example of how children learn illustrating my achievements or work with children... Not sure how to approach this! I also saw on the website that it would be beneficial to bring a portfolio of evidence of all my experience. Does anyone have any advice about that??
Would really appreciate any pointers. It's only just over a week away now ahhhhh! Thanks!

Hi, this is also my first time on here and I've just come across your message. I realise its been a week since you've had your interview (I've got mine in January ), I studied Psychology too and I was wondering how it went.
For the 'bring an example of how children learn illustrating my achievements or work with children', I thought I might bring a picture of a group of children smelling soap and fragrances (It was part of a soap making club I ran) and say some thing along the lines that children learn by exploring through their senses etc.. What did you end up doing and how did you tackle the portfolio issue?
I'd really appreciate any hints or tips you have to offer.
