Year 10 Careers Day & Practice Interviews

Careers InterviewsIn July we invite volunteers into school to conduct practice interviews with our Year 10 students as part of their Careers Day.

The day starts with an inspirational talk by an ex-student and is followed by a CV writing skills and employability rating skills session, a motivational team building session with the RAF/Army, and a workshop delivered by our Connexions Adviser on labour market information.

Throughout the day, students have practice interviews with volunteers and parents from companies such as: AECOM, MMU, NHS, Astra Zeneca, L’Oreal and Unilever. The interviews are an introduction to ‘real life’ interviews and give an insight into the world of work. To attach a sense of reality and importance to the day, students come to school wearing smart business attire.
