Hiya. Have a read through the Teachers' Standards. These are the basic standards all teachers are required to meet by law. Having an awareness off them will stand in your favour as you'll have to constantly provide evidence that you're meeting the TS throughout your teaching course. Have a look through the 'news' section of TES. Anything that pops up multiple times is good fodder for your interview. With the election coming up, school funding is a good choice. Other hot topics are mindfulness and the recruitment/ retainment crisis. Do lots of reading and make sure you can summarise at least one key issue and that you have enough knowledge to discuss it with your interviewer. Other than that, just prepare answers for the obvious questions, e.g. Why do you want to be a teacher? What qualities could you bring to teaching? Why is primary education important to you? Do you have an idea of the age group you might like to teach? What do you think classes as effective pedagogy?

Hope this helps

Thank you Ratatatat. That's all really helpful. I'm I'm the middle of preparing and I don't know anybody else that's going for the Primary Ed course so I really appreciate your response!

You're welcome. I'm in the final year of my BA Ed, I remember how nervous I was for my interview. Just get that preparation in and you'll smash it! Good luck
