Hey everyone, I've got an interview next week for a Primary Teaching undergraduate course. Has anyone got any ideas of what to expect or any tips?

Expect questions such as why do you want to do this course? What experiences have you had with dealing with young children etc The definite - do you have any questions? For this one - either develop something that you have been discussing in the interview, or ask something completely different. Don't ask about anything that is already written in the prospectus or on the website - makes it seem as though you haven't done your homework! They might ask you about what skills you have that will enable you to be a good teacher - perhaps chat about patience, ability to explain things in lots of different ways, clarity and so on....

Tips - be yourself! Let your personality and enthusiasm shine through. Even if you're nervous try to act confident - especially in your ability. Smile - this will help to break the ice and will help them to see that you're a friendly, approachable person.

Hope that's helped a bit...
Lots of luck for it! Sure you'll do great.

Thank you! Guess it's all common sense really, just hope the nerves don't take over.

Yup! Sure is. Keep a clear head - don't worry about it - there's nothing to be nervous about, they just want to find out a bit more about you - impress them!
Oh - and a good firm handshake!
Good luck! xx
