    People will not be allowed to give you interview questions and it's unfair. In terms of dress, formal is always advisable.

    Hey Grace,
    I had Social Work interview on the 26th. I wore smart clothing, a skirt, blouse, black tights and smart dolly shoes. In the interview they asked questions about what makes a good social worker aka skills. What skills you've got from past experiences like personal experiences and voluntary work. They asked about what is indirect and direct discrimination and how to overcome it. They asked how about vulnerable people. When they say do you have any questions I would advise you to ask something about the course which makes you look interested. I asked what practical activities they do for their students. The day after 27th I received an offer but it was an offer for the Social Care course instead of the Social Work course which is better than a rejection. At least they think I have potential. Good luck, keep calm and do your best!
