Dear Parent / Carer
RE: Year 11 Mock Interviews
On Monday 4 December 2017 we are hosting ‘Mock Interviews’ for Year 11 students. Students will need to attend school wearing appropriate interview attire or full school uniform and will need any food or drink they may require for the morning as the canteen will be closed and students will not be able to leave site. (This day is a Staff Training Day in our school calendar and is closed to students in other year groups). Students have worked hard on writing quality “Mock” Application Forms and have had the chance to discuss these with their Tutor.
The timings are as follows:
9:00am Arrival & Registration in Tutor Rooms
9:10am – 9:25am Lift-Off Assembly – Main Hall
9:25am – 9:30am Proceed to classrooms for interviews
9:30am – 12 noon Interviews and CV writing
12 noon – 12:15pm Student Feedback from employers
12:15 pm Event Closes – students go home
Beforehand students will need to research the area of work that they are being interviewed for and consider how they might “sell” themselves at interview. Students will be asked questions that perhaps relate to:
This Information and Guidance Event is a very significant opportunity for our students and will certainly help to develop and enhance their communication and interview skills. We have over 30 employers coming to interview students, and last year it led to real employment opportunities – we envisage the same happening again this year.
Many thanks for your support.
