In preparation for the interview day we ask
that you complete the documents attached to your invite e-mail and
bring these to the interview with you:
- Prior achievement booklet (to consider how
your prior experience might support you in a teaching role)
- Subject Knowledge Audit
- Breakdown of degree content
You should also come prepared to discuss how
your subject area is taught as part of the curriculum.
Teaching Activity Information and
As part of the interview you will be expected
to deliver a short teaching/interaction activity to staff, the
pupil panel and peers. The pupil panel will consist of a
group of between 6 to 10 pupils.
For this activity you should
choose any aspect of your subject to teach
for 10-15 minutes. You will need to lead this learning
activity with the pupil panel.
You are advised to keep the following points in
mind when preparing for this task:
- Aim to use the full
10-15 minutes, although you will be stopped if you exceed this
- You are not limited in
terms of specific topic or content.
- You will be expected
to engage and interact with pupils, and demonstrate
the ability to facilitate learning.
- You will not have access to
a computer and/or projection equipment but may bring other
resources if you wish.
