Here’s the FULL LIST of interview questions for the TEACHER INTERVIEW:

Q1. Tell me about yourself?

SUGGESTED ANSWER:

“My teaching style is primarily centred on class engagement. I adapt my teaching style in order to cater for everyone and make the material as interesting as possible. I like to use group exercises, colourful PowerPoint slides and even videos where possible to demonstrate my learning points. I believe this is something which increases student interest significantly, and from my experience, leads to a better learning experience overall. I am highly effective at behavioural management, and focus on the three R’s of RESPECT, RESPONSE and the RIGHT way to learn. These have served me well over time. Finally, I have an approachable, inclusive style of teaching that is sufficiently flexible enough to cater for a diverse range of learning styles, needs and requirements.”

Q2. What is it that has attracted you to this school/course specifically?

SUGGESTED ANSWER

“I fully understand the pressures that are placed on teachers. And I also understand the pressures placed on you, the school. These pressures need to be managed effectively so that we all work together to achieve the aims of the school and meet the needs of the students we are teaching.To begin with, I believe in proper, effective planning of both time and lessons. Planning helps significantly reduce stress as a teacher. Secondly, I believe in maintaining a positive and happy mindset. If you are happy and positive, this rubs off on your work colleagues and also the students you are teaching. Finally, I look after myself outside of work. I eat well, and whilst I am not a massive fitness fantastic, I often go walking and carry out physical exercise to clear my head and this also helps to reduce stress, too.”

Teacher Job Description and the Competencies Required to Become a Teacher


As a teacher, you will be required to create and utilise lesson plans that are in line with current educational curriculum’s and their objectives. You will need to establish a strong rapport and professional teacher/student relationship which is aimed at getting the most out of the pupils and enabling them to excel and achieve the highest grades possible during their exams. You will need to keep all teaching resources organized, plan your lessons well in advance and have the skills and attributes to manage unruly or disruptive students.

The educational establishment will require you to create and maintain a positive and inspiring classroom environment where the students are able to learn, develop and feel inspired. In addition to helping pupils and students develop the appropriate skills to lead a successful life, you will also facilitate the development of social abilities. In addition to the creation of effective lesson plans and classes, you will need to monitor the progress of your students, assess and mark their work and prepare them for national tests and examinations.

The role of a teacher is demanding, yet rewarding and you will need a solid set of skills and attributes to perform this highly-important role competently and professionally.

5 TIPS FOR PASSING THE TEACHER INTERVIEW!

TIP #1 – Modern-day teaching requires an ability to not only provide exceptional teaching and delivery of lessons to your pupils/students, you must also be able to handle the pressures that form part of the role. Before you attend the teacher interview, we recommend you think of situations you have been in previously, either within the education sector or elsewhere, where you have successfully handled pressure and stress whilst competently conducting your role. Be prepared for teacher interview questions such as “Can you give an example where you handled stress or pressure at work?”, or “How would you cope with the pressures of teaching?”

TIP #2 – You will undoubtedly be asked at least one question during your teaching interview that relates to your teaching style. Whilst you do not need to provide an answer that demonstrates a unique and innovative style of teaching, it is advisable to provide evidence of a structured and methodical teaching style that gets results for the students and the school. If you can back up your style of teaching with results-based evidence, even better.

TIP #3 – Dealing with unruly or difficult students is a skill that is needed by all teachers. Most schools and educational establishments will already have guidelines in place for dealing with this situation, and if the school you are being interviewed for already has them too, we advise you find out what they are and utilize them in your answer to questions such as: “How would you deal with a difficult or unruly student?”

TIP #4 – “What does the role of a teacher involve?” is a common question, and on the surface, it appears to be easy to answer. However, the only effective way to answer this is to study the teacher job description in detail for the role you are being interviewed for, and then insert the relevant requirements of the role into your answer. Each school and educational establishment will have different teaching requirements and it is important you do not use a generic answer to this question. Be unique in your response to this interview question and tailor your answer to the school you are applying for.

TIP #5 – Prior to your teaching interview, consider your lesson plans and how you are going to structure your classes. Educational establishments need teachers who get results, and the way to get results for your students is to have effective lesson plans in place. If you have pre-determined lesson plans to hand, take them with you to the interview so you can provide real-life examples of what you intend to use during your time as a teacher with the school.
