    I had to discuss an issue at my interview for Nottingham Trent - I discussed the fact that there is so little male primary school teachers. There was quite a big article on it the week before my interview, giving statics and stuff, so I managed to discuss that, and bring it into how I'd be as a teacher. Obviously, I'm male, so was able to bring in personal experience and discuss how important it is for that male authoritative figure at such a young age.

    I don't know how helpful that is, but I managed to get a place so they must've liked it, but good luck!

    Read the education pages in newspapers like the Guardian and Times. This week there was an article about cut backs to Religious Ed. and the effects this may have on a multicultural society. It doesn't really matter what you choose it is how well you present your ideas that is important and how you link the issue to what you have seen in school practice.

    I was thinking of discussing the importance of outdoor play for young children, but thats more 'ongoing' than current. And perhaps the new ofsted framework, and the impact it's had on schools.

    Thanks, and well done on getting a place!

    That's sounds like a good idea to me. There's been some articles about that recently. Also, you could refer to practice in countries like Sweden where they use a lot more outdoor work than we do in the UK - are you going for early years? Again, refer the debate to what you have seen in school.

    Yeah, Early years, I thought that- I have found a few recent articles about it. And also can talk about forest schools etc, and links to free-flow play I have observed in placement.
    I think I've just been determined that everything I think of is wrong... Thank you!

    It's usually just a general chat and is good if you can link it to school experience - "There's been recent debate about XXXXXXX with opponents saying ............... but my experience in school was the opposite........" etc etc

    You could also link this to the new proposed ratios in early years! Which is pretty disgraceful if you ask me! 4 babies and 1 carer, I don't think so!

    Slimming down of curriculum.
    Primary returning to more traditional ways. Rote learning of timetables, as previously taught.
    History going to be taught in chronological order, not jumping about all over the place.

    Read BBC news education and Times education supplement.

    Good luck
