Get together with other trainees trying to get on the Graduate Teacher Programme (GTP) in the TES GTP Group. Get GTP application and interview advice, find out who’s got a place where and discuss what it’s really like once you’re on the GTP programme
I had my interview last year and thought that around 8 out of the 10 of us were good candidates too and I was curious about how many they would offer places to.
In the end they took 7 of us. Whether that was beacuse we were a particularly 'strong' group or because if you get to interview stage you've got a pretty good chance of a place I'm not sure.
Certainly, the one person who seemed strong who didn't got a place made a bit of a boo boo on the safeguarding questions during the interview, otherwise it might have been 8! Be wary of those questions. Don't say you want to work with children because of their innocence and naivete...
I had an interview for the Hartlepool GTP yesterday. Just wondering how soon after your interview they called you?
I hjave recently applied to em direct and I just wondered how you got on with the overall interview process and is there any guidance you could give me?
Hope it went well and good luck!!
Me too!..and I have a feeling we may be at the same school if you are doing Primary!
Were you advised to do a maths booster training course? It is in June and wiould have to raise funds to actually do it and really don't think I can so soon, although I see it would be really useful. Will have to call them and suss it out I guess. Just worried that my place is conditional on this...however letter stated it was just recommended...ahh.
