TERRIFIC INTERVIEW EXPERIENCE FOR OUR YEAR 10 STUDENTS
We were delighted to be able to offer some of our Year 10 students the opportunity to attend a day of mock interviews. Over 50 students took part in the pilot event facilitated by NYBEP, a first ever for the school. Volunteers from more than 15 local businesses and organisations gave up their time to support our students, interviewing them and giving them feedback. The event was a great success with students commenting on how much confidence it gave them for interviews in the future. We also received wonderful feedback from the volunteers, who were impressed by the students’ manners, behaviour, presentation and confidence.
Miss Hamer, Careers Adviser, said: “This really was a great event, a brilliant opportunity for students to get a feel of what a real interview might be like. They had the opportunity to meet two different employers, receive feedback, and reflect on the feedback in between their interviews. To see some students arriving feeling nervous and not knowing what to expect, and then watch them leaving with beaming smiles and full of confidence, was exactly what we hoped for! ”
We would like to extend a big thanks to the team at NYBEP for facilitating such a great event, and for the volunteers, without whom this would not have been possible. We look forward to running this event again for future Year 10 students.
