    Hello!

    i have applied to do teaching at wolverhampton and another course there (childhood studies - conditional offer).

    I have a interview for BEd Early primary education on the 17th april 2013, and i have no idea what to expect etc.

    I took out a gap year, so i finished college in 2012 and i have a job in a school as a playleader which started this year - jan 2013. When i was applying to the uni, on my personal statement (PS) i wrote i will be working as a playleader and looking at the curriclums. However, when i started i found out, i will not have any curriclums to follow! It is a 2 hour shift everday where i just set up activites for reception to year 6 using a games book!

    i do not know what the uni will ask, etc. All they have asked for is my quailifacations!


    i got two weeks to prepare!

    Need some help please?!?!
    much appreciated! thanks! xxx

    I'd be worried about why you have a CONDITIONAL offer from a University, when you are on a gap year and already have your grades.

    For the interview use some common sense and think about what they're likely ask you. Why that course? Why that Uni? Why a teacher? (if you want to be a teacher) What makes you think you'd be a good teacher? What interests you the most about the career?

    Think about your job and experiences in that job - what you've learned from your job so far (include things such as any specific regulations or conventions you're aware of).

    first of all, thanks for replying to this!

    My work collegue got the same offer too and its due to waiting on a letter the uni will send us to ask to come in and give quaficiations; they wanted proof. It told me on UCAS.

    Yeah thanks, i thought of them. Do you have any tips as in like good things i could say because i always sound like i cant say whats on my mind properly as i talk alot and then it just ends up confusing people!

    so nervous xx

    THANKS!
