With a few small changes to my interview technique, Tony helped show me how to highlight my strengths and perform to the best of my ability. I felt confident and more in control at the interview and I believe that this really helped me get the job.
Imelda, Primary School Teacher
Tony was very professional, thorough and effective in the delivery of his service. I found his guidance and interview technique to be very helpful and relevant in securing a teaching post in today's job market. After the Mock Interview session, I found that I had grown in confidence and had gained a very practical insight into the whole interview process. I believe that if it wasn't for his expertise and help, I would not have been as successful in securing a post.

Tony is highly professional and knowledgeable in the field of mentoring people for preparation for interviews. Tony really helped me to deal with nerves and handle myself well at interview. I found the sessions very beneficial at restoring my confidence at interviews and he was always only an email away with questions I had outside of our sessions giving me valuable advice and information.  With Tony’s help I am happy to say I was successful at my principal interview! Once again many thanks for everything and I will not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone in the future!

Interview Technique

Tony provides an in-depth Interview Technique Coaching Programme aimed at positions in education. He has vast experience of the Interview process for Principals, Deputy Principals,Teachers and Assistant Principal Posts. He has chaired many interview panels for all of these positions. His experience on countless interview boards, his knowledge and his natural ability to draw the best out of people make for a top class service in this field.

The full service normally consists of two sessions with each candidate. 

Session 1 -- Prior to the meeting, all relevant information about the candidate is acquired through a CV and/or a draft of completed application form for a position sought. The emphasis at the meeting is on being positive about the interview process and not being intimidated. Seeing it as an opportunity to highlight your strengths. Detailed notes are provided on all areas covered at the session.

Session 2  --  Involves a full scale 'Mock Interview'. The candidate's performance is critically appraised. A very comprehensive report on the candidate's performance is drawn up. It is done on a 'question by question' basis with advice and recommendations provided. It is emailed to the candidate normally within 24 hours of the interview.

Note :  Help and advice is also provided in relation to filling out application forms.Information is given on how they are assessed. Where a candidate has lined up a number of interviews, an additional session is normally recommended to assess the candidate's performance at their first interview. Again, a detailed written report is issued so that the candidate will be stronger for the next interview.
