The York St John University PGCE interview
process is designed to give academic staff and school partnership
colleagues an opportunity to meet with prospective students to find
out why they have applied for the course and to discuss in more
detail the information provided on their application form. It
also gives applicants an opportunity to talk about themselves
and to demonstrate their practical and academic skills relevant to
the programme through a variety of tasks.
Assessments are made during the day regarding the
- Commitment to, experience and understanding of primary
- Personal and intellectual qualities
- Ability to communicate effectively with adults and children in
a school context
These assessments are made through group and
individual interviews. There is also an opportunity during
the day to tour the campus.
