Year 11 Interview Practice

On Monday 14th October 2019, year 11 students had the opportunity to experience an interview with volunteers from a variety of local businesses.  In preparation for this, on ECO day (1st October) year 11 students undertook CV workshops and received guidance and support on interview techniques. 

James Pickering, Senior Recruitment Consultant at Network Marketing said “I have been very impressed with the interview performances today.  The students have been good at communicating their unique skill sets which shows great self-awareness, something which is hard to master.  I’m looking forward to support this event again next year, it’s been really rewarding for me to give something back today.”

On behalf of our students, we thank our partners from businesses in the local community for supporting this event and helping our students to develop crucial employability skills for their futures. Stephen McArdle - Careers Advisor
