PGCE Early Years University of Hull, Scarborough campusWatch
Is anyone doing the PGCE Early Years at Scarborough campus this year??
I had my interview in Jan, did the skills tests and have found out that I've got in for the intake in September.
They don't require that the prospective students do presentations anymore at the Scarborough Campus, PGCE 3-7. (They did during the 2012 intake) However, I know they have to do a presentation to a larger group at the Hull Campus (PGCE 5-11).
This is what I had to do:
9AM- Presentation about the course given by the staff.
English, Maths and Non-Cognitive Assessment.
12-ish was lunch.
PM- School Observation and interview with the Head and a uni staff member. We finished really late so be prepared for a long day.
Take snacks lol.
I've been practicing for the skills test. Are the test you do at the interview of that level or are they more basic? Just not too sure what to be revising.
Thanks for your help
I would recommend that you get the 'How to Pass the QTS Skills Tests' books of you haven't got them. It helped me to work out what kind of questions that they generally ask and then I practised a ton of examples.
The literacy test on interview day is basically just questions about the article they gave us and questions on how we analysed the article (opinions etc). The Literacy Skills Test is different as it involves spellings; grammar, puNctuation and comprehension.
Hope that helps!
Hello! I also have an interview for the early years course in March so feeling very nervous. Trying to get some preparation done early but I'm a bit confused about the non-cognitive assessment as it doesn't really mention it in the information I received, can anyone tell me what that is about? Also I'm trying to revise for the maths test so I have been looking on bitesize at the GCSE level stuff, do I need to revise algebra at all as well as the areas mentioned in the previous post? Thanks for any help you can give!!
I had my interview on the 31st January, and now have an offer! Nice to meet you all
I had my interview in January and got an offer for a place if I passed my QTS tests, which I have now done.
I think the most important thing to practise was converting decimals, fractions and percentages. Is anyone else definitely headed to Scarborough in September?
I also will be there in September, well done for passing your QTS tests! :-)
On the interview day they said that it doesn't limit it as you can teach all areas of primary.
