Local Businesses Conduct Year 11 Mock Interviews

Three days in early January saw our annual Mock Interview event taking place for Year 11 students, designed to assist them in preparing for their upcoming Further Education interviews.  The event was supported by 47 visitors from a range of local businesses and industries who used their specialist skills and knowledge to encourage students to develop their confidence and communication skills.

Each student undertook a 20 minute interview, before receiving verbal and written feedback on how their performance could potentially be improved for future occasions. Despite a few initial nerves, each student completed a successful interview and visitors praised the students and the event as a whole. Feedback from visitors included;

  • “It was a pleasure to meet polite and respectful students in school”.
  • “I really enjoyed my morning again and I do believe that over the years the standard has improved in both CV and interview techniques.”
  • “It was a pleasure to assist the school in this valuable exercise.”

Further to this, many students received further individual praise which will be shared with the year group in a celebration assembly next week.
