    Hi,


    I have got 2 interviews next weeks for Schools Direct Secondary History. One through York Uni and the other through YSJ. I'm so unbelievably nervous I feel sick!! Does anyone have any advice they could offer me? I'm not 100% sure I know what they're looking for, or what they're expecting from me! For one I have to do a ten minute presentation on 'Why is history great?' and the other I just have to do a 5 minute starter activity. I'm panicking so much!
    Also worried about the interviews. I haven't done much history since I left uni, and although I am very enthusiastic about getting into teaching and I have a lot of transferable skills, I am worried I'll mess up because I'm not sure what they're looking for.

    Does anyone have any advice, at all...?

    Thank you.
