Edutribe has arranged a free job interview training guide for Early Childhood Educators including mock-up interviews, CV and cover letter templates, interview questions and more.

When you're looking for a new Educator to join the team, you want someone who is knowledgeable, may have had some experience and is qualified. However, at times you may be suspicious due to the qualification the Educator has received yet the knowledge that they share or the answers to questions just don't match up.

When going for a job interview the most nerve wrecking part of it, is answering those questions that may be asked. As an Educator, you will need to be familiar with a variety of topics from knowing about the approved frameworks (EYLF, MTOP etc.), to understanding how to handle scenario type questions. Each service brings different types of interview questions that may be asked. Here is a collection of interview questions that you can prepare for.

A resume is your first impression in a one to two page document that sums up your work qualifications, experience, skills and teaching philosophy. It's important to have a resume that outlines your achievements and experience in a short, concise and efficient way in order to attract an interview. 

You’ve seen a job position that you’re interested in, you have a resume but it asks you to respond to the Key Selection Criteria. This outlines the qualities, knowledge and skills needed to complete the job and helps employers look for someone with a specific set of skills and experiences. 

This article should give you a heads-up in preparing for an interview in a childcare centre for a traineeship, casual or a full-time position. This will give you guides on how to prepare for an interview in Childcare, Pre-school or any Early Childhood Settings, finding a suitable childcare centre to work, job interview questions you can be asked, resume and work experience requirements, questions you can ask, first impression, appearance & what to wear, other paper works required and more.
