Interview questions for a Nursery Nurse

  • post reply

    Hi, we have not had to interview before and the LEA has no guidance on suitable questions for interviewing a Nursery Nurse. Does anyone have a list or any ideas as to what we should ask?

     

    Thanks C

    What is it you like about working with children.

    Give an example of an activity that worked well with children.

    How do you develop chidlren's language and why is  talking to chidlren so important

    How do you support the needs of individuals- give an example form your expereince perhaps.

    Why is observing children playing important

    How would you set out a roon in the morning, Which resources might you choose and why

    Do you have any specail skills and talents that you could share.

    If a chid needs  reminding about behaviour- how would you go about this

    How would you deal with conflict amongst children- give candidate scenario perhaps.

    How would you establish and maintain relationships with parents and respect confidentiality.

    How does your role differ from that of teacher

    What would you do if parent apprached you about a child's progress-

    What would you do if child made a disclosure

    Do you have or would you train for 12 hour paed first aid. What would you do if a chid had an accident and you were alone in the room.

    Also give them opportunity to ask questions too- as this often tell you a lot about the candidate.

    Let me turn it round and ask,"What answers would you give?" Then other posters could tell you if you are on the right tracks. There might be different opinions.

     Many  of these questions  are meant to encourage candidates to show their unique approaches and  talents and give them oppportunity to share relevant  work experiences.

    If you are not sure of any answer such as the behaviour management or working with parents, it is ok to say would seek advice or refer to the school policies to makes sure but from personal experience  you would feel that....

    Mug up on the factual answers to the disclosure question and learning through play perhaps.

    Also mug up on the setting you are a candidate for just in case they ask you why you want to work there. Even if they don't ask try and get it in.

    Well if you are a candidate it is your answers and yours alone that are important. They are only a a vehicle for you to talk in your own way. They are pretty generic questions that could apply to any setting.

    If you are the one asking the questions at interview  then the same goes- you will have an idea of how you would answer the questions yourself  to see  if the candidate matches up with your own opinions.

     

    Which ones in particular cause the probelm.
