Year 10 Careers Day & Practice Interviews
OnĀ 8th July we invited volunteers into school to conduct practice interviews with our Year 10 pupils as part of their Careers Day.
The day started with an inspirational talk by an ex-student, Stephanie Neill, and was followed by a CV writing skills and employability rating skills session, a motivational team building session with the RAF, and a workshop delivered by our Connexions Adviser on labour market information.
Throughout the day, the pupils had practice interviews with volunteers and parents from AECOM, MMU, NHS, Astra Zeneca, LāOreal and Unilever who kindly gave up their working day to interview our girls. The interviews were an introduction to āreal lifeā interviews and gave them an insight into the world of work. To attach a sense of reality and importance to the day, the pupils were asked to come into school wearing smart business attire. The high standard and quality of responses to questions was commented on by several interviewers who would have readily employed our pupils.
