I am going to be interviewed for a head of History position in my current school. I have been at the school for 4 years and this is the first promotion I have gone for. There is one other candidate. I was just wondering if anyone could give me ideas about the types of questions that will be asked. The last interview I had was as an NQT so feeling a bit rusty.

Thanks for your help in advance.

I had an interview Friday for HOD and was asked the following areas -

[*]How to raise achievement
[*]My priorities for the department
[*]Supporting underachieving staff
[*]What makes a good history team
[*]How to achieve consistency in behaviour across the department
[*]How to achieve conistency in teaching and learning across the department

Hope that helps and good luck,
Jo

You forgot to add 'conistency in typing' :teacher:
"Lesson planning is best undertaken when walking from the staffroom to the classroom. More detailed planning, by walking more slowly."

I would add to those about impact - what have you done in your current role and the impact that it has had. Also about leadership and management - what are they, how have you already demonstrated them.
