    Hello All,

    I come here seeking advice and tips regarding my first ever teaching interview for an NQT position in September.

    I will be teaching a 30 minute lesson on a curriculum area of my choice. I really want some guidance on how to format my lesson, what topics to cover, etc.

    I want to do it on Literacy, any have any ideas of good areas to do? It's a Year 5 class btw.

    I'm a secondary NQT so can't help with specifics but can probably give you a few general pointers. Go onto the jobseekers section on the TES forums for a wealth of information though.

    You probably already know this, but within those 30 minutes, they will be looking at a) your general presence and ability in the classroom, if you have a good rapport with the students, and b) clearly demonstrated progress. That will involve a starter to help you gauge where the students are at, presentation of something new, an activity (differentiated if you can) to practise it, and your plenary is your chance to show the observer exactly what progress has been made by each child. If that means them all writing a level or a statement on a mini whiteboard or a piece of paper, then do that.

    Good luck and read the TES forum!
