Can't help with Durham specifically, but this article should be able to give you some advice: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/jobs/careers/teaching/teacher-training-interview-advice

I had an interview at Durham for Primary Education . It was absolutely fine. Presentation on artefact, presentation on favourite subject and then a few questions. Very friendly interviewers. Don’t worry you’ll be fine. Good luck!
For the presentations, obviously you need an artefact to show, but did you use any other materials or did you just talk? As I’m not sure if I need to prepare anything else

I just talked. I had a presentation prepared for my favourite subject but there was no need to show them it they were happy to just listen. There isn’t enough time really to do anything else. Good luck

I had mine on 16th December and found out beginning of Jan but they said they’d had a technical problem with their computer system so I should have heard before Xmas. So I think normally it’s really quick.
Thank you!! The suspense is killing me🤣
Guys, you're scaring me.... I applied in November and I haven't hear ANYTHING since they confirmed my application got to them!! How long did it take them to get back to you about having an interview and how long in advance were you given to prepare?
