PGCE Secondary Interviews
Your Teacher Training interview
The session will start with a welcome from a senior member of the School of Teacher Education. This will provide information about the Teacher Training programme and its distinctive ethos and focus on the Hope Teacher. There will also be an opportunity for questions.
This will be followed by a three-stage selection process:
- Group task. Bring an artefact with you, and be prepared to explain to a peer group how you could use this artefact in school to stimulate interest and learning. Your artefact could be a text, picture or an item/object.
- Literacy task. One short unseen activity - this will assess your ability to communicate in standard English.
- Three part individual interview. This is usually conducted by an academic tutor and a teacher, and will last approximately 30 minutes. The interviewers will assess your suitability to teach, your subject knowledge, values underpinning teaching and your ability to reflect on your own experiences.
