will do I'm quite looking forward to it now, more nervous about travelling & the logistics of it!
I used my time before this week to really swot up on the competencies and on Teach First....planning the lesson and refining it to be only 7 minutes has taken me much longer than i thought (though i don't have much spare time to do it) so im glad i prepared as much as i could before x
Good luck today

I had hoped one would stand out. I’m thinking maths or English KS2 but want to do some research. What about you?

7 minutes is tough. I’m feeling a little overwhelmed about the whole thing to be honest. I’ve had a few negative comments towards wanting to go into teaching. Need to get cracking with all my prep. How are you getting there on the day?

I’m getting the train in the morning. Think I get into st Pancras at 8:45 so should have enough time to get to Greenwich. It’s going to be a long day but I’m looking forward to it. Then will hopefully find out quickly if successful or not

Nerves won’t hit me until I’m actually there. I’ve heard it’s a friendly day so hopefully the nerves will settle quickly. I’ve not started any lesson prep yet so need to get a wriggle on

I understand it seems very overwhelming, I for sure was very overwhelmed when I was prepping for my selection day, however, once your there, and get chatting to everyone, you’ll soon see that everyone is feeling the same or similar, you’ll soon feel relaxed. And the lesson, even though it may seem the most daunting as 7 minutes is not a long time, but for me it was the best part of the day, just be engaging, be yourself, be passionate and attentive, you’ll do great 😊

Thank you. I appreciate it. I’m usually a calm, relaxed and fairly confident person. Hopefully when I feel more prepared I will relax a little more. It’s definitely very exciting 😊

It's a very nice, co-operative atmosphere on the day because everyone is in the same boat and you're not in competition with each other...

I really struggled with the 7 minutes and it's the lesson where I fell down mostly....the main thing I took away from it is to stick to your plan! Mine went out of the window ....

I really enjoyed the day though and it was a good experience

Best of luck! X

Just got an offer for Maths in the North East - is anybody else doing the same or in the same region?

I’m a little gutted because I’d really wanted to be closer to London or down south, but I’m still so so excited to be on the programme!
