Hi Kat,

First of all congratulations on being offered 5 interviews - that's amazing, well done.

No two interviews are alike, but there is some excellent guidance on the Get Into Teaching site to give you an idea of how to be best prepared for the types of questions you may be asked: https://getintoteaching.education.go...ning-interview

You may also want to join in on the Teacher Training 2020 thread here: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=5764594 as while TSR don't allow the sharing of questions asked in interview, there are many in the same situation as you so you will find some great support.

Wishing you the best of luck in your interviews!

Katrina

Hi Kat,

Congratulations on getting the interviews, that is fantastic well done!
As mentioned before no two interviews are the same, often the providers ask for very different things at interview as well. Some may ask for example that a few tasks may be completed, some just one or two. Always worth speaking to them before if they haven't given set guidance to see what is required. So you can prepare accordingly. I would also recommend if you haven't already got one, getting a Teacher Training Adviser, who can help you with interview preparation. Teacher Training Advisers are all ex-teachers and have all been through the process before or may have even taken interview themselves. To have access to a adviser you can call 0800 389 2500 or register online at http://getintoteaching.education.gov.uk/.
