    Hey guys,

    I have my interview for Sheffield Hallam on the 19th April for the Post 16 teaching course. Looking at doing drama.

    I am majorly worried about the interview though as I have no idea what any one will be asking me? They say they will be looking for these things:

    - Their knowledge about the post-compulsory education and training sector
    - Their interest in and commitment to a career in teaching
    - Their ability to communicate clearly and accurately using standard English
    - Their competence and confidence in numeracy

    There will be a literacy and numeracy test...any tips for any of the above?! xx

    Talking about specific interviews is banned on TSR, so nobody can tell you what they will ask you. Though you can search for typical PGCE interview questions on the internet, there are plenty of sites dedicated to this.
    Read the TES magazine and forums for knowledge about the post-compulsary sector. You should know about some current issues within it and be able to talk about them clearly.
