How We Select Our Trainees

Interview process

If we invite you for interview and assessment, it will involve a formal interview, an interactive session with a group of pupils and skills tests ( maths, SPAG and writing).
The interview will be conducted by a panel of headteachers and possibly a University colleague. We will explore your motivations for wanting to teach and your understanding of what the career involves.
We want to see how you interact with children so we will ask you to work with a small group of pupils on a provided task. You will be given information regarding the selected task with your interview offer.
The WCPSD skills tests are  in addition to the professional skills tests and will test your use of standard English, Maths,  grammar and spelling.
Our interview and assessment process is rigorous but fair. It provides quality candidates with the opportunity to demonstrate the range of skills and attributes which are essential to succeed on our programme.
If you require any further information about our programme before applying, please contact our office.
