PGCE applications Watch
Hey! I have applied for Primary PGCE in Coleraine, Edge Hill and Liverpool Hope 2019/20, I sent away my ucas this morning and have already received an interview of Edge hill! Just wondering if having an interview so early is good news and what I can do to prepare. Also, when can I expect to hear from Coleraine?
As for prep, again, I only speak from my experience on my QTS undergrad course, so this could be totally off for a PGCE so don't take my word for it, but with my course, on the day of our interviews, we also sat and English and Maths test which we had to pass to receive an offer. So I was preparing for that. My course also did individual and group interviews. The group interviews included explaining how we would use various resources on the table to teach, and what areas of the curriculum we would use them in. Some things there included a teddy, a feather etc.
Any knowledge you already have about teaching will be beneficial. Teaching theory or just experiences to draw off. This was focussed on a lot in my interview.
I hope this helps? Good luck!
