PASSING THE PRIMARY TEACHER INTERVIEW – 4 ESSENTIAL TIPS FOR SUCCESS

TIP #1 – As a Primary School Teacher, you will need to utilize a unique set of teaching and interpersonal skills to get the most out of your pupils. During the Primary Teacher interview, you will be assessed against your ability to meet the educational curriculum through proper lesson planning and also by using an effective style of teaching. In preparation for your interview, make sure you prepare answers to questions that relate to how you plan to deliver the lessons through fun, engaging and an inclusive style of teaching.

TIP #2 – Your Primary Teacher interview will consist of three different type of questions. First, you will be asked motivational questions, such as why you want to become a Primary Teacher, what you can specifically bring to the role, and also questions that are focussed on your specific strengths and weaknesses. Second, you will be asked research-based questions, such as why you want to work for their school and also what you know about the school curriculum. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, you will be asked a series of tough, behavioral type interview questions, It is essential you prepare answers for all three types of interview questions in the build-up to your Primary School Teacher interview.

TIP #3 – When responding to the situational/behavioural interview questions, we recommend you use the STAR technique for structuring strong, robust and solid answers. All of the behavioral-type Primary School Teacher interview questions featured on this page have been developed using the STAR method to ensure you give the highest scores possible during your interview.

TIP #4 – We can almost guarantee you will be asked an interview question that assesses why you want to work as a Primary Teacher for their particular school or educational establishment. It is very important you give a unique answer to this question that demonstrates you have studied the strengths of the school and also the challenges it faces.
