  effectively for teaching interviews

  interview questions appropriately

  interview technique
Death by interview or chance to shine?
Discussion: What are your biggest concerns or
fears about the interview?

• Prepare and practise
Preparing for interview
Three Steps:
1. Your preparation
  •   Research and rehearse
2. Your presentation
  •   Appear professional and confident
3. Your performance
  •   Articulate yourself clearly
The interview format
•   30 – 60 minutes’ duration
•   Panel of 2 – 4 people
•   5 – 8 questions, 5 minutes for each
•   Format can include:
    – Verbal questions
    – Written question sheet/task provided prior
    – Presentation on pre-determined topic
    – An ‘interview lesson’
    – Psych testing
The interview structure
• Arrive – pre-task?
• Greet and small talk
    – Follow their lead, use their names
•   Ice-breaker question
•   3 – 5 selection questions
•   ‘Is there anything you want to ask us?’
•   Close and farewell
    – Thank them for their time; end on a +ve
School and role research
• What do you know about the school?
  – School and MySchool websites
  – Prospectus, annual report etc.
  – Colleagues, network
  – Parents and students?
• What do you know about your future
  colleagues? Your department?
• What issues are topical in education?
• What do you know about the interview panel?
Question themes
Questions will seek to evaluate your:
• Knowledge of teaching and learning theory
• Behaviour management capabilities
• Future plans (PD, career)
• Potential contribution to the school
• Ability to deal with conflict
• Ability to work in a team
Preparing yourself
• Stress less
  – Be punctual, prepared and well-presented
• Dress not distract
  – Appropriate attire, nothing distracting (loud
    ties, fancy jewellery, too much bare skin)
• Positive body language
  – Hand shake, eye contact, posture and position
Tips to stress less
• Plan your day well in advance
• Allow double the travel time
• Aim to arrive 15 minutes early
• Bring any prompts and other material
• Find a quiet corner (in the car?)and breathe
  deeply with your eyes closed
• Accept a glass of water if offered
What should I wear?
• Dress professionally for success!
• Find out the dress code of the school
• Save your Mickey Mouse tie/socks for another
  occasion!
• No dangly earrings or plunging necklines
• Polish your shoes, cover tattoos and piercings
• Forget the heavy scent and make-up
• Ask someone’s opinion: Do I look ok?
Projecting positive body language
• Make good, confident eye contact often
• Extend your hand; offer a firm handshake
• Smile
• Sit upright, face the interviewer
• Listen carefully; paraphrase to demonstrate
  understanding
• Try to project confidence: important for
  classroom management
• Be yourself! (to the extent that is possible…!)
What do they want to see?
The panel wants you to:
• Know your subject/profession – both theory
  and practice
• Demonstrate a passion for teaching
• Display charisma and confidence, be energetic
  and enthusiastic
• Be able to relate to others, esp. students
• Show good self-awareness
Question types
Three types of question:
• Behavioural
  – E.g. Tell us about a difficult student you have had
    to teach and how you turned them around
• Hypothetical
  – E.g. What would you do if a parent abused you
    after class?
• About you, general
  – E.g. Tell us why you are a good fit for this school
How to answer Behaviour questions
  “Tell us about a difficult student you have had to teach
  and how you turned them around.”
• Outline the situation
  – Two years ago I taught yr 9 History and had a student
    with Asperger’s Syndrome…
• Explain what action you took
  – I consulted the Special Ed. Dept. about his learning
    style and the best way to engage him…
• Describe the outcome
  – He responded really well, was far less disruptive than
    in other subjects and continued History in Year 10
How to answer Hypothetical questions
   “What would you do if a parent abused you after class?”
• Identify the issues
   – Clearly the issues here are of security, safety and due
     process…
• Outline all possible strategies
   – I am aware that at this school Heads of Houses are
     primarily responsible for dealing with parents in the
     first instance…
• Determine a course of action
   – On balance, I would suggest that the parent and I
     discuss the matter with …
About you questions
• Think of the way in which politicians answer
  questions: Their responses are structured and
  focus on a key message.
• About you questions are a chance to
  demonstrate and elaborate on your USP (your
  brand).
• Try to make three points per answer.
Interview practice
• Complete your interview preparation on the
  first page of the sheet provided
• Find a partner and exchange sheets
• Conduct a 5 - 10 minute interview for each
  person
• Provide meaningful, constructive and honest
  feedback on your partner’s presentation and
  response to questions.
And finally…
• An interview is merely a conversation with a
  consequence.
• Practice makes perfect
• ‘The purpose of life is to discover your gift. The
  meaning of life is to give your gift away.’
      – David Viscott, US Psychiatrist (1938 – 96)

I wish you luck in finding a school to help you give
your gift away.

  • 9. Preparing yourself • Stress less – Be punctual, prepared and well-presented • Dress not distract – Appropriate attire, nothing distracting (loud ties, fancy jewellery, too much bare skin) • Positive body language – Hand shake, eye contact, posture and position
  • 10. Tips to stress less • Plan your day well in advance • Allow double the travel time • Aim to arrive 15 minutes early • Bring any prompts and other material • Find a quiet corner (in the car?)and breathe deeply with your eyes closed • Accept a glass of water if offered
  • 11. What should I wear? • Dress professionally for success! • Find out the dress code of the school • Save your Mickey Mouse tie/socks for another occasion! • No dangly earrings or plunging necklines • Polish your shoes, cover tattoos and piercings • Forget the heavy scent and make-up • Ask someone’s opinion: Do I look ok?
  • 12. Projecting positive body language • Make good, confident eye contact often • Extend your hand; offer a firm handshake • Smile • Sit upright, face the interviewer • Listen carefully; paraphrase to demonstrate understanding • Try to project confidence: important for classroom management • Be yourself!

  • 14. Question types Three types of question: • Behavioural – E.g. Tell us about a difficult student you have had to teach and how you turned them around • Hypothetical – E.g. What would you do if a parent abused you after class? • About you, general – E.g. Tell us why you are a good fit for this school
  • 15. How to answer Behaviour questions “Tell us about a difficult student you have had to teach and how you turned them around.” • Outline the situation – Two years ago I taught yr 9 History and had a student with Asperger’s Syndrome… • Explain what action you took – I consulted the Special Ed. Dept. about his learning style and the best way to engage him… • Describe the outcome – He responded really well, was far less disruptive than in other subjects and continued History in Year 10
  • 16. How to answer Hypothetical questions “What would you do if a parent abused you after class?” • Identify the issues – Clearly the issues here are of security, safety and due process… • Outline all possible strategies – I am aware that at this school Heads of Houses are primarily responsible for dealing with parents in the first instance… • Determine a course of action – On balance, I would suggest that the parent and I discuss the matter with …
  • 17. About you questions • Think of the way in which politicians answer questions: Their responses are structured and focus on a key message. • About you questions are a chance to demonstrate and elaborate on your USP (your brand). • Try to make three points per answer.
  • 18. Interview practice • Complete your interview preparation on the first page of the sheet provided • Find a partner and exchange sheets • Conduct a 5 - 10 minute interview for each person • Provide meaningful, constructive and honest feedback on your partner’s presentation and response to questions.
  • 19. And finally… • An interview is merely a conversation with a consequence. • Practice makes perfect • ‘The purpose of life is to discover your gift. The meaning of life is to give your gift away.’ – David Viscott, US Psychiatrist (1938 – 96) I wish you luck in finding a school to help you give your gift away.
