Summer to September: interview tips and tricks for the budding supply teacher

The end of this academic year is hurtling towards us, and it’s the perfect time to book yourself in for an interview with Key Stage Teacher Supply so that you’re ready and raring to go into our schools, local to you.

Never done supply before? Maybe you’re feeling a little apprehensive about your September plans? Don’t worry, because here at Key Stage Teacher Supply, we can offer you many opportunities, such as day-to-day, weekly, long term and permanent work!

Here are some tips and tricks for you to make sure that you are ready for your interview with us:
• Research – never heard of us before? Why not give Key Stage Teacher Supply a search online, to make sure you know what we’re all about! The best place to look would be our Testimonials, to see what our past schools and candidates have said about our service. The more you know, the more prepared you’ll feel walking into your interview.

• Document check – ID is important, so don’t forget it! Pack your bag the night before so you know that you have the documentation required, and also means that there is one less thing to worry about on the day of your interview. This saves time for both us and you, and shows that you’re organised and that you’ve planned ahead: a really good sign to any employer.

• Dress code – dressing well really does come across well to an interviewer: it shows that you’ve put an effort in, and that you would know how to dress were you to be hired; starting as you mean to go on!

• Keep calm and carry on – we will be asking questions around your classroom management and experiences, and what opportunities you would like to gain whilst with Key Stage Teacher Supply. Here is a link to some of the questions we ask in our interviews to give you some peace of mind.

The most important thing to us is that you have a rewarding experience with Key Stage Teacher Supply. The more we know about you, the more we can speak to our schools on your behalf to get you your next teaching role.
So, call your local branch and book an immediate interview. Looking forward to hearing from you!
