Gaining interview experience for the future

On Wednesday 31 January and Thursday 1 February 2018, after completing a CV and covering letter, Year 10 students had the opportunity to take part in a mock interview with a range of employers from across the local area. 

These included Baldwins Solicitors, Coast and Country, Foundation for Jobs, Teesside University, Sunderland University and Warsett Ltd.

102 students attended for their interviews and had the opportunity to learn first-hand how they could develop their skills to ensure that they are fit for the working world. Feedback from the employers was excellent with many students performing to a high standard even though it was their first experience of an interview. 

All students received feedback on their CV, appearance and performance in interview to enable them to learn from the experience and to help them to understand what will be expected of them in a real interview situation.
