Our Year 11 students have now applied for further education courses, so interviews for Colleges, sixth form, apprenticeships and full-time jobs are just around the corner. In preparation for this we organised a “Mock interview” day on Thursday 16th November so that students could experience for themselves what it feels like to be in an interview situation and the type of questions they may be asked at interview.
During the course of the day, every Year 11 student took part in a 25 minute interview based on their own CV. Interviews were conducted by members of the local business community and representatives from the Shipston on Stour Rotary Club who have much experience in interviewing young people.
The day was a great success with the students gaining a lot of valuable knowledge and useful information to help them in the “real thing” and our visitors remarking on the level of maturity and ambition for the future shown by our students.
Once again, we are very grateful to all our interviewers for giving up their own valuable time to give their support to this project.
