Hi all,

I'm from Belfast, and currently just been given a date for my PGDE interview on the 6th. I'm currently going through the interview requirements and just wondering if anyone has any hints and tips?

Thanks

Well done on completing your interview! I'm sure you did way better than you thought. I know these things are always so nerve wracking. I know I would be shaking and fumbling for words if I was put on the spot.But I haven't even heard anything back yet! Did they ask subject knowledge? I'm currently swotting up on the Curriculum for Excellence because I'm from Ireland. I wish you the best of luck.

I'm doing secondary as well! That's great that you knew someone who did the course.I would actually be extremely grateful for any hints and tips or notes tbh! Is this your first time applying? This is my second time applying. I actually didn't even meet the requirements last year so I had to do Leaving Cert maths again! If I don't get an interview, I will still apply next year. Teaching is the only job I want to do. I really hope you hear good news very soon!!!!!

I'm hoping to teach Business even though it's probably fiercely competitive with limited places!.What's your subject? Perseverence always pays offYeah my friend always reminds me to never give up on something you really want! Eventually they'll have to let me in lol I'm new to this too. Aww thank you so much. I had to look it up too.

Fingers crossed guys!! I'm stuck on what to do my presentation on, and trying to cram everything about scotlands education system. Any ideas on presentations? I was thinking of behaviour management in the classroom based on my experiences.

I'm stumped 😫

Hi All

I have my interview next week (English - PGDE)
I was educated in England so obviously need to brush up on CfE knowledge.

I'm unsure what to focus on for my presentation though - should I try and tie it back to my subject or am I ok to be let it be unrelated?!

Also - for those who have had theirs - did the day last from 9am-12pm? I will be heading back to work so a heads up would be great! haha

Thanks

Hi guys! I have my interview next Wednesday the 7th! I'm doing my presentation on my teaching experience so far.. Very nervous about the group discussion though as I'm from Ireland and amn't very familiar with the Scottish curriculum. Anybody else do the interview for Biology yet?

Hi! Woohoo I'm doing mine on behaviour management I used while teaching abroad, I've had to do that interview before so it's easy enough. Struggled linking it to scottish education, as the docs better relationships etc doesn't exactly give you much, compared to the Charlie Taylor checklist the schools use in NI

Hi guys, I have an interview for pgde secondary history at Strath on the 8th. They've just asked me to come in for an individual interview for 15 minutes, did anyone else have this type of interview for the same course and if so what kind of things did they ask?
