The interview will be conducted by a panel of headteachers and possibly a University colleague. We will explore your motivations for wanting to teach and your understanding of what the career involves.
We want to see how you interact with children so we will ask you to?work with a small group of pupils on a provided task. You will be given information regarding the selected task with your interview offer.
The?WCPSD skills?tests are for our use only and illustrate any training needs..
Our interview and assessment process is rigorous but fair. It provides quality candidates with the opportunity to demonstrate the range of skills and attributes which are essential to succeed on our programme.
