Interview Process

Once we receive your application it will be acknowledged and reviewed. If you are offered an interview you will be invited to attend one of our pre scheduled dates held at Wildern School.

The interview is a half-day duration and consists of:

  • a lesson observation
  • a 20 minute practical activity with a small group of children
  • an interview with the Wildern Partnership SCITT Director/ Strategic Lead
  • a coffee and chat with a current trainee

You will be asked to complete a subject knowledge competency assessment ahead of your interview.

You will be sent interview details in advance so you have plenty of time for preparation. We aim to make your interview as welcoming, enjoyable and informative as possible, enabling you to perform at your best and to gain the knowledge you need to accept a place if offered. Decisions about the offer are made very soon after the interview and the outcomes communicated through both the SCITT and DfE Apply.

All our schools are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young children and safer recruitment procedures are followed by the Wildern Partnership / i2i SCITT Partnership. We expect all staff and trainees to share responsibility for this.

Self-disclosure will be required as part of the Accredited Provider’s recruitment process and all successful applicants will be required to undertake an Enhanced-level check via the Disclosure and Barring Service.
