Interviewing an NQT



A panel of former headteachers discuss the key techniques needed to conduct a successful interview with an NQT, in response to a hypothetical request.

The panel have received an email from new headteacher, Ken, asking the team to pass on their interview tips and advice for hiring an NQT.

The former headteachers reflect on their own experiences over nearly 50 combined years of headship and reflect on how the head can use the interview to ensure that the inexperienced NQT is the best person for the job.

The team consists of retired headteachers Alan Key and Colin Richardson, as well as Peter Laurence, a former head who is now development director at the Brigshaw Trust of eight schools.
