How We Select Our Trainees

Shortlisting from Application
Course Leaders and colleagues from Partnership Schools will look at application forms and decide who will be invited for task/interview day. It is therefore important that application forms contain all the relevant information and that particular attention is paid to the personal statement. References of those invited for task/interview will be requested at this point.

Task/interview Day
Applicants who are successful at this stage will receive a letter inviting them to a task/interview day. The morning is composed of a group task, a presentation task and a written task. The tasks are designed to find out more about applicants and their suitability to teach. Based on performance in these tasks, successful applicants will be invited to remain for a personal interview in the afternoon. This will include a brief teaching task which will be detailed in the letter inviting applicants to interview.

Original documentary evidence of degree and GCSE qualifications must be provided at interview.

Merit
We work closely MERIT (Minority Ethnic Recruitment into Teaching) who support BME candidates through the selection and interview process. Visit their website for more information- http://www.gateshead.gov.uk/merit/Home.aspx
