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 have a Schools Direct interview in January. I need to prepare a presentation which will be presented to a student panel and the subject is: select one or two experiences in your school, university or working
life, which have influenced your views on education. You should be prepared to explain why these
experiences have been influential and possible implications for secondary
Does anyone know what they're trying to assess here? What sort of things would be good to include? The fact that its in front of a student panel is throwing me a bit, will they ask me questions?
Will it not be different though as I'm giving a presentation to them? Or is that just a guise for them to ask me questions?
What they are assessing through your presentation is your potential to teach. They will be looking at how you structure your talk ,what stimuli you use, what you choose to focus on etc.They are imagining you in the classroom so approach it like you would deliver a lesson and convince the audience you can teach.
