I interviewed at Calgary Board of Education (Calgary, AB)

Interview

Behavioural interview with the interviewer only looking for key words. Will cut you off once they have "heard" what they are looking for. Very impersonal process that is indicative of the big machine that is the CBE.

Interview Questions
  • Give an example of a time that you dealt with a difficult student.

Once you get all of your information on their site, the callback for interviews happen relatively quickly. The interview to get into the board is very impersonal and it will ask you about your teaching philosophy and how you would handle certain situations. That interview takes 30 mins-1hr

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Calgary Board of Education (Calgary, AB) in Sep. 2018

Interview

I was interviewed by one recruiter who was very friendly. The recruiter introduced herself and explained the interview process. The interview was recorded and included a series of rapid fire questions. The interviewer had warned me ahead of time of what the interview process would be like. After the interviewer turned off the recording, she thanked me for my time, and gave me the floor to ask any questions. She answered all my questions kindly and even gave me some amazing advice about working within the CBE.

Interview Questions
  • How would you manage a difficult parent/student/colleague? How do you incorporate competencies in your practice? Describe a situation in your teaching that you are proud of? How do you support the different types of learners in your classroom? How do you connect with parents?

I applied online. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Calgary Board of Education (Calgary, AB) in Apr. 2018

Interview

You are sat in a room and told that you cannot ask for clarification on any questions, as it's your responsibility to elaborate on the scenario or question without their assistance. They will then ask you one question at a time from a computer, fill it in as you answer, and then move onto the next. Depends on who is interviewing you, but there's usually no interaction otherwise - very straightforward. You need to be able to talk to a brick wall and still share your passion for teaching. You are then notified very shortly whether they'll offer you a position or not, starting as a substitute.
