    Where is your interview for? As providers tend to vary slightly. We had a 2:1 interview. There was myself and another applicant with a local primary school headteacher. We were asked questions that are generally expected from ITT interviews such as:
    Why did you want to become a teacher?
    What do you think you could bring to the profession?
    What do you think you would find most challenging inside the classroom?
    What subjects did you enjoy most in Primary school?
    They may ask you something about current affairs in education hence why before our interviews myself and a classmate were told to read the guardian's educational supplement at every possible opportunity!

    Good luck, hope this helped. What age are you applying to teach?

    You're welcome, I had someone that helped me when I applied last year so I thought I'd come on here and try and help!
    Oh well done, where else have you applied for?

    That is exactly the same as me, I did some work experience in a foundation stage unit and it really opened my eyes. I really want to specialise more in the early years but I don't know if my course will allow me to do that so much. But I guess I'll just have to wait and see!

    Best of luck for your other interviews!
