A Guide to Primary School Interviews
Múinteoir Valerie has teamed up with 4schools to publish the third edition of her ever-popular book, 'A Guide to Primary School Interviews'.
This book will guide you through the interview process, covering the standard application form and the letter of application in great detail. A wide range of questions with in-depth sample answers are provided in both English and Irish.
The interview guide covers the importance of first impressions, researching the school, questions to ask the interviewing panel and an interview checklist. Also included are interviews carried out with three principals covering what they look for in a candidate.
There is a selection of questions for those applying for principalships, including sample criteria, along with a section on interviewing for an ASD class or a special school. The guide also covers preparing for interview in an Educate Together School, posts of responsibility interviews, and re-interviewing in the same school. Essentially, it covers everything you need to know for interviewing, regardless of your current career stage.
