Every year we provide valuable ‘employability’ experience for our Year 11 pupils through our mock interview programme. Pupils start by preparing their CVs and then take part in a formal interview.
The pupils were asked a series of questions based on their CVs. For the majority this was the first time they had experienced a formal interview – quite a daunting experience. The interviewers then gave the pupils feedback on their interviews and CVs and interview tips for the future.
The mock interviews were a resounding success. We are immensely grateful to all our volunteer interviewers for giving up their time to come in and help our pupils develop their employability skills by preparing for future interviews in the world of work.
