I thought all the signs were bad as the interviewer spent the whole time making notes and not maintaining eye contact. One seemed interested and the one grumpy/uninterested.
I'm a nice person but I just can't think on the spot when I'm nervous and while my answers were okay they lacked detail.
At the end of the interview I thought all was lost. But then the interviewer asked me if I would be interested in doing the post qualified teacher training. When I said yes they both wrote down i had said yes. They then ran me through the training I would have to undertake and asked me if I would be willing to do that. They then asked where I lived and if I had a preference between the two school locations.
Then they asked for my teaching certificate.
I feel that these were good signs. Or am I looking too much into it?
I've just had an horrendous job interview. Watch

From experience it's usually the ones that were intense or stressful that end up better. It's good they were taking notes, perhaps it's the answer they were looking for. Don't worry about it, if you don't get the job the pick yourself up and apply for another job

Feeling an interview went badly is no indication of how it went. The interviewers could be grumpy from the last terrible candidate or because of something irrelevant and it's normal for them to write a lot down, they will have to justify their decisions and it's hard to remember candidates if they interview a lot. That said the end questions about training and so on will just be things they have to ask so I wouldn't take them as an indicator either way.
