The Teacher Interview Questions and Answers Workbook

A brand new definitive 130-page comprehensive workbook that is packed full of tips and advice on how to pass the teacher interview…

Naturally, the United Kingdom, which is comprised of England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, is facing the effects of a worldwide recession, just as any other country. However, there are still many opportunities out there for teachers.

If you are looking for a stable, well-paid and rewarding career then the job of a teacher might just be for you. The most effective way to prepare for this type of career is to obtain an interview preparation workbook that will give you sample interview questions and answers.


Experts suggest that the 2012-2013 “recruitment wave” is going to be one of the largest markets for teachers ever.  A recent Shelter Offshore article stated that the job market in Britain and Scotland is low in comparison to overseas positions.  However, Rapid Online (by Rapid Electronics) suggests that the recession has had positive effects on the recruitment of some types of teachers, like math teachers.  Sue Johnston-Wilder of University of Warwick explained to the publication, “If you have got an affluent period then mathematicians attract quite a lot of income. People tend to choose the money over job security, then when you get a recession then job security becomes more attractive.”

The good news is that once you land a job as a teacher your benefits are long lasting and very rewarding.  As stated, main pay scale teachers move up a step every year until they reach the maximum level of pay.  Other benefits include:

•    TLR (Teaching and Learning Responsibility) payments for extra work.

•    Teachers’ pension.

•     Holidays off and paid.

•    Housing and home ownership options not available to other workers.

In addition to handsome monetary compensation, there are other benefits.  Teachers can expect job security, especially as they gain experience.  International teachers have even greater job security, as they have an in-demand skill.  Some travel may be expected, and at worse, you may have to travel within your county/school district.  However, once you land a teaching position in England you most likely will be able to land a job in any school around the world.

Teacher interview questions and answers workbook is an exceptional resource for anyone who is interested in pursuing a career in teaching.

The Teacher Interview Questions and Answers Workbook

During your preparation for the teacher interview you should focus on demonstrating a number of key evidential areas, as follows:

Key evidence areas

1. Provide examples of where you have implemented teaching and learning activities to a climate where students actively engage in meaningful learning experiences. An example of the type of interview question you could get asked is as follows:

Q. Can you provide an example of where you have taken it upon yourself to improve the learning environment for your students?

2. Give examples of where you have modified teaching resources to meet the needs of the students you are teaching.  An example of the type of interview question you could get asked is as follows:

Q. Can you provide an example of where you have altered and changed your teaching style or lesson plan in order to adapt to a students needs?

Q. Can you provide an example of how you have assessed or analysed your teaching curriculum and offered ideas or suggestions for improvement?

Q. Can you provide us with details of how you organise your working day and how you manage to stay on top of your administration work, marking and student records?

5. Provide evidence of how you have previously created a positive environment for your students. An example of a type of interview question would be as follows:

11. Provide details and evidence of how you successfully manage your workload. A sample question might be:

Q. Please provide specific details and evidence of how you manage large workloads whilst working under pressure?

TOP TIP – Obtain a copy of the job description and person specification for the job you are applying for. Then, work through each element and predict the possible interview questions you could get asked. Many of the interview questions will come from these important documents.


Some of the other rewards that teachers experience are highly personal.  For instance, many teachers consider the chance of helping lost youths find their way in life to be enjoyable as well as meaningful.  In addition to help students, some teachers genuinely appreciate the chance to face new challenges and help new students every year.  Some teachers look forward to watching their surrogate sons and daughters grow from a clueless child into a responsible adult—perhaps even one destined for greatness.  Remember that some of these kids come from broken homes and look up to teachers as their ‘shining stars’ in life—to sir with love, indeed.

Other teachers prize the opportunity to stay young and in touch with the younger generation.  Many teachers have children of their own and consider a teacher’s schedule highly conducive to family life.  After all, a teacher has more or less the same schedule of a child—with summers off, weekends off and vacations.

The job of a teacher never gets boring, even while it does remain autonomous.  This setting helps the teacher to be creative and yet relaxed at the same time.  Last but not least, the social contact a school brings can be rewarding.

A teacher can look forward to daily humour, close friends, respectable associates and a very receptive audience to jokes, eccentricities and witty retorts.
