Hi, I was just wondering for anyone who has had an interview with Hope how long was it on the day?
I have a 10:00am start and was wondering whether I will need to take some food for lunch etc.
Mine was about a month ago now so I can't remember exactly!
The whole registration process (i.e. providing your documents and signing in) took about an hour because there were so many candidates there. From around 11am onwards you did your skills tests and then at about 12:30pm you get a brief lunch break. If you want to take food its entirely up to you, there is also a café/shop close by.
The afternoon consists of the presentations and individual interviews. I was in a group of 10 people and was last to be interviewed so ended up waiting for about 90 minutes! I reckon it was around 4pm by the time I'd finished.
I would guess that maybe as you're one of the later interview dates there may be less people so you might not be waiting around for as long. I definitely wouldn't expect to be done much before 3pm though.
Good luck! It's a really relaxed and friendly day :-D
Thank you so much! They didn't give many details about the structure of the day so that information is brilliant.
I have heard it is a relaxed atmosphere so that will help a lot with the nerves :-)
Again there weren't any details for the 'Literacy Test', is it just the same sort of material that is in the Literacy Skills test?
Thank you! I feel calmer knowing I can't really revise for the literacy test :-) and thanks for the heads up about a group task.
One minute I feel quite calm and confident but then it flips and I feel sick with nerves. Just going to try and relax and enjoy the experience, I suppose they are trying to sell themselves to us as much as the other way around :-)
Can you tell us a bit more about the Group presentation please?
I'm going for an interview mid March for Secondary Music.
How did you present your lesson plan? Did you do a PowerPoint presetation of it or did you just print out am a sheet and present it?
Can anybody tell me what they were asked in the interview? I have it tomorrow
