What is your advice about? Interviews

1: Find out as much about the school as you can in advance; if at all possible visit before you apply for the job.

2: Make sure you meet the colleagues with whom you will be working most closely. If they don’t laugh at your jokes now, they never will.

3: Ask your prospective head of department if you can look through their schemes of work and lesson resources. If they don’t have anything in place you might want to reconsider.

4: Ask what the panel believe they about good teaching. If it sounds dodgy, or at odds with your beliefs, don’t take the job.

5: It’s currently a buyer’s market. If you have other interviews lined up, don’t be afraid to tell the headteacher.
