    Hello, I'm a fellow 2016 Primary Ed applicant! I've only had one interview so far (BGU - conditional offer) but I've got four in the next few weeks. I've spoken to a fair few primary ed students and they said this sort of thing comes up a lot:

    Why do you want to be a teacher?What do you think makes a good teacher?What are you looking forward to about becoming a teacher?What are your concerns about being a teacher?Why have you chosen this particular university for your course?Why you have chosen specifically to workwith pupils of the 3-7 age range?Where would you like to be in five years’ time?What skills should a teacher have?
    What makes you think you will be a good teacher?
    Describe a situation where you have had to use your initiative.
    What are your main strengths?
    What did you enjoy about your work experience placement?
    What did you learn from your placement?
    Also check whether or not it's a group interview as they tend to be slightly different to 1-1 interviews and allow you to lean on other candidates (and they'll lean on you).

    Hope this helps x
