If you’re thinking about training to teach in Scotland this is the group for you. In the TES Scotland Prospective Student Teachers Group hundreds of aspiring trainee teachers get together to chat about interviews, applications and who’s got a place where.
Hello, I am in exactly the same position, I got rejected after my interview at Moray House and awaiting news from my second choice- Strathclyde. Definitely go to the interview if you get one!! :)
They asked me who my favourite teacher at school was and why, what my weaknesses are, why I wanted to teach, and what changes to the Geography curriculum there were.
Maybe you just missed getting a place at Glasgow.
I've heard from the guy who is in charge of Geography at Glasgow, that Strathclyde is better. Not sure if it's the same for every subject, but Strathclyde is more demanding so you end up learning more and with a better degree.
Just thought I'd let you know that there's a batch of English interviews for Strathclyde happening on the 30th. I got an email invitation this afternoon, so they definately still have places available.
Yip I just found out yesterday that I have an interview on the 30th so they are definitely still recruiting!! Hope you hear soon.
Thanks, Audrey - me too! Congrats on getting an interview :) Did you hear via track or through e-mail?
I heard via email and not track as GTTR claimed that I had been unsuccessful. Turns out that I had been rejected by default from Strathclyde because more than 28 days had passed between the uni receiving my application and the uni making a decision. Safe to say I was very confused when I was invited to interview! Hope you find out soon :)
Sorry for the late reply- dissertation looming over me haha- I heard via email, my track status is blank still for Strathclyde. Have you heard about an interview?
