    Hi what uni are you applying for?
    Be open and talkative, your going to be a teacher one day so your gonna have to meet and talk to new people all the time. Try to laugh and don't show your nerves.
    When I had my interview last year I wore a dress but many people wore leggings with a nice top. Try to style your outfit on what teachers wear on a daily basis so cardigans or long tops. Don't under any circumstances wear jeans or leather jackets (just a warning).
    As for questions I got asked how would you maintain a good relationship with the cleaner?
    How would you decorate your classroom?
    How would you manage behavior?
    What would you do while on placemement ans you were being bullied by staff?
    Try to read something to do with education in the news right now as they could ask you to discuss a constroversial topic in the news, you could talk about safeguarding or discuss religion and racism in schools.Good luck let me know how it go's.

    Since you and I are both unsure, if I were you I would play it safe.

    I have an interview in St. Mary's tomorrow. Do you have it too?

    It's a shame, we could've seen each other in the interview. By the way where do you have your interview?
