first ever AP interview!

Post by laurap123 » Wed Feb 10, 2016 1:29 pm

hi guys,
Its my first post so sorry if its wrong! I've had a good read through and can't see to find my answer so thought id start a new topic!
I've finally! got my first AP interview in an adult LD service, I'm currently a support worker in a low secure unit for adults with LD and mental health.
the interview says I've got to give a presentation on "What is a learning disability and how does this impact on people’s lives?" and that it should only be 5 minutes long.
i feel i could waffle on for ages so I'm guessing they're looking for short and concise presentations..
anyway my question is.. would it be worth starting with a definition of a LD? if so does anyone know where is best to use it from.
at uni we were always told to use a definition but I'm just bit unsure

Thanks in advance if anyone has any advice!

Think hint is in the question isn't it? 'What is…." I'd be weary of simply stating a definition. By all accounts; I imagine its a matter of opinion and coloured by history, context and how definitions developed….?

Hi Laura,

I have a interview similar to yours, and I was wondering what type of questions do they ask you? would really appreciate your help.

Gia, you've asked this in two threads now, so I will need to point out that soliciting or providing interview questions is explicitly against our rules here as it undermines the fairness of the interview process.
