Five trainee teachers compete in mock interviews for an NQT role With an increasing number of trainee teachers chasing a fixed amount of full time jobs, performing well at interviews has never been so important. Five trainee teachers show how it should be done and how it shouldn’t, as they compete to see who will best impress in the interview room. A preliminary interview will determine which two will go through to the next stage. Of the three remaining, one will be coached to see how much they can improve.
Steven Jones is an ex-city worker who has come to teaching relatively late. He is finding it hard to absorb the amount of educational theory needed as a trainee teacher, never mind being able to regurgitate it clearly in an interview setting. At the shortlisting interview, Steven is picked out by interview coach Christine Webber as the candidate who she thinks could most benefit from interview coaching.
