Event description

Description

If you have received an email invitation confirming you have been shortlisted for interview please book a place above. You must then read below for details how to prepare for your interview.


YOU MUST READ THE IMPORTANT INFORMATION BELOW TO ASSIST YOUR INTERVIEW PREPARATION

The timeline below is for guidance only and you should note the date you have booked may have a different start time.

  • 15 Minute introduction to the PGCE Teacher Training Programme.

  • 45 Minute written task that will be to assess your literacy and knowledge of teaching practice.

  • Remainder time: Further subject knowledge test (specific to your chosen PGCE). During this period you will also present a teaching exercise and have an individual interview with a course tutor to discuss your application and merits for the course.

Subject Specific Tast for PGCE Secondary Science with Biology/Chemistry/Physics Interview

You should read the National Curriculum specification for 11-16 year olds in your subject (Secondary) and make sure you are able to make a convincing case about how your subject knowledge equips you to teach the subject for which you are applying.

You are also required to plan an activity for the interview. Please follow the instructions below carefully. If you have any questions about what is required then you should contact the course leader for your subject.

To demonstrate your subject knowledge in Biology, Chemistry or Physics, you are expected to teach a 10 minute mini lesson (to an imaginary key stage 3 audience) of any aspect from one of the key areas of;

  • Cells
  • Energy
  • Evolution
  • Forces
  • Interdependence
  • Particles
  • Space

Your lesson should address the following:

  • The learning objectives and outcomes
  • Possible differentiation for pupils of different abilities
  • Addressing possible misconceptions
  • Assessing if the desired outcome was achieved

ICT presentation facilities will be available but you are strongly advised to have paper copies in case of a problem with ICT equipment. Please pay particular attention to the clarity of your explanations of scientific ideas, which is a vital area for science teachers and more important than use of multimedia at this stage.

Please direct any queries you have regarding this preparation to: Stephen Jones s.jones2@londonmet.ac.uk all other queries as per the FAQ's below.


This information is also available on The Interview Process page of the London Met website.


FAQs

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

Use of public transport is strongly recommended. Holloway Road Tube station (Picadilly Line) is located directly outside The University. There are also good bus services on Holloway Road. Parking is very restricted and likely to be expensive for a full day.

Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Call admissions 0207-133-4200 or email ITT@londonmet.ac.uk

Can I update my registration information?

Call admissions 0207-133-4200 or email ITT@londonmet.ac.uk if anything changes with your attendance.

I applied to a school why am I invited to London Metropolitan for my interview?

Our partner schools (Cardinal Pole, Aylward Academy, Princess May Primary and Orchard Primary) all work with London Met who accredit their Teacher Training Programs. This means that you will attend the University for the interviews with applicants from all routes. Teachers from the schools may also attend and support the interview process.
