The Interview Process

You will deliver a 5-minute presentation, without the use of technology, to a group of pupils explaining why you want to be a teacher: make this engaging around your subject and/or phase and leave time for questions. 

You will join a lesson with a fully qualified teacher, usually in your subject area or key stage preference, where you will have the opportunity to interact with the students. There will be a formal interview with senior leaders from the SCITT and partner school. This is an opportunity for you to share with us why you want to be a teacher of your subject or phase.   

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.
