    Hi,

    I applied to do primary education at Reading, Brighton, Edge Hill, Nottingham Trent and Oxford Brookes. I have been invited to interviews at Reading for Primary Education with art and Brighton, has anybody been through the interviews and has any advice, or has/is anybody going to apply?

    Thanks

    Hi, Good Luck!

    I've not had interviews at any of those ones, I've applied for Primary Teaching with QTS at Worcester, Winchester, UWE and Oxford Brookes.

    Had interviews at both Worcester and Winchester. They were both very similar- they wanted to know why I want to become a teacher; why I chose their university (at which point elaborate- talk about opportunities to work abroad and any additional qualifications they offer along side such as first aid etc.). They also ask 'what sort of teacher would you want to be?'

    We also completed a little written assessment. In Worcester it was titled 'Why would you be a good teacher?' and in Winchester it was reviewing a Teaching article they had given us.

    The most important thing was to look up the teaching standards as this was something they were both particularly looking for. (standards https://www.gov.uk/government/upload..._Standards.pdf)

    On a different note- when did you send your application off? Have you heard back from Oxford Brookes as I haven't yet!

    Good luck again, hope this helps.

    Hi,I applied to Worcester, Winchester, Reading, Glouchestershire and Derby. I have got interviews for all 5 of them but I don't think im gonna go to them all. I had Worcester and Winchester interview this week. Winchester was alright apart from i had a really horrible interviewer! But Worcester was so so so lovely and it was basically just a chat and a small informal presentation in front of 4 other girls and the interviewers. I was offered an offer the next day! Worcester is my favourite so i'm not going to go to any other interviews. But don't stress too much over the interview days, the are generally quite fun and everyone tries to put you at your ease, apart from that one horrible man! They all say that obviously its a chance for them to see if they want you, but its also a chance for you to see if you want them, so they try to sell themselves as much as possible.Good Luck!

    This made me feel so much better about the interview days- Worcester is my favourite too, but i have two interviews before that one.
    Im kind of worried about the cost of going to all of these interviews! Did you have to do an oral presentation and if so, did it go well?
