What questions might I be asked at interview?

Questions are obviously likely to be different for different job types. However, for newly-qualified teachers, or teachers seeking posts without responsibility, a range of questions frequently occur.

The Edge Hill College Careers Service offer excellent booklets on interviews, including a range of 80+ questions that teachers might be asked in interviews. These booklets can be download here:

Secondary Teachers
Please note, these are both PDF files. You may wish to save them to your PC before opening.

Miss Communicate started a very useful thread on this topic in February 2005, which gave the following link to likely interview questions for teaching candidates. Please note that the site is American, but offers some useful tips nevertheless.
