The Interview Process 

5-Minute Presentation

You will deliver a 5-minute presentation, without the use of technology, to the interview panel: make this engaging around your subject and/or phase. Aim to demonstrate that you have researched the relevant National Curriculars and can connect your experiences and studies to these areas.

Formal Interview

There will be a formal interview with senior leaders from the SCITT and partner schools. This is an opportunity for you to share with us why you want to be a teacher of your subject or phase. You will be asked subject or phase specific questions centred on the relevant National Curriculars and Programmes of Study- be sure to research these prior to your interview!

Written Tasks 

You will also complete various written tasks assessing your subject knowledge, numeracy and literacy skills and your attitudes towards education including the safeguarding of children.

If invited for an interview you will be expected to provide evidence of your qualifications, information about past experiences and education.
