    I had an interview for primary teaching, not at Derby though.

    When I went for my interview, that day consisted of different activities. First we (everyone who came for their interview) had to get into groups and do some group activities together, then we had to do an english and maths test and then we had our individual interviews. The lady who interviewed me asked questions such as "why do you want to become a teacher?", "what do you think makes a good teacher?" etc.

    I would advise you to read up on the latest news regarding primary education, just incase your interviewer asks you a question regarding that. Otherwise, stay calm, be yourself and show that you are really interested and passionate about becoming a teacher. Best wishes!

    ~1st year Primary teaching student.
