Whenever we interviewed for a teaching post we either specified an area of learning if it was a high criteria for selections, or we didn't specify one at all. I preferred the latter as it really shows who is creative in their thinking. We would state the group size (eg a small group or whole class) and the time eg 20 minutes. The rest was up to the candidate. We would then begin the interview with Why did you chose that activity?

What about a getting the children to interview the candidates? The way the candidates handle that wil be a real eye opener to their attitudes to children.
