Mock Interview
Y11 Mock interview day

To enhance our Careers curriculum we had a variety of local employers come into school to work with our Y11 pupils. The focus of the day was to provide our pupils with valuable interview experience and face-to-face interaction with employers from the local community. Pupils received personalised feedback based on their interview that can be utilised to give them a competitive edge in the future. (Gatsby Benchmarks 2,5,8)
