The interview process

Once we have received your application via UCAS we will check that you meet our eligibility criteria.  Successful candidates will be shortlisted for an interview; these take place on a Friday only on a weekly basis until all our places have been filled.  Plese note that we have an allocation of a certain number of spaces for each subject.

Interview days are divided into two.  In the morning you will attend a panel interview where you will be asked to make a 5 minute presentation, perform a subject knowledge exercise plus a planning exercise.  If you are successful in this you will be invited to stay for the afternoon which will involve a written test, group activity with pupils and a panel interview. 

Successful candidates will be given a conditional offer which is subject to passes in the Professional Skills tests in literacy and numeracy, DBS and health checks, evidence of qualifications etc.  

Detailed verbal feedback is provided to all interviewees following this process.
