How do I prepare for the subject-specific elements of my interview?

Please be prepared to deliver a five-minute presentation on a lesson topic relating to an area of Religious Education that you are particularly interested in and that is appropriate for secondary pupils in Year 7 (11 years old).

Your presentation should:

  • outline the content of the lesson
  • include your thoughts on the learning opportunities (in the broadest sense) for the pupils
  • include your thoughts on any aspects that you anticipate the pupils may find particularly engaging, difficult, or challenging.

Additional notes:

  • This will be a verbal presentation. Please do not to use PowerPoint or other presentation formats (including a whiteboard).
  • You may wish to show an object as a prop or resource, but this is not required.

If you have any questions about the presentation that you need to prepare, please contact the subject leader, Martin Sutton (, before the date of your interview.
