Careers – Year 11 focus

Year 11 Mock Interviews

Each year, Year 11 students complete a face-to-face, competency based interviews with an external business volunteer. These interviews have always proved to be very successful and make a lasting impact on our students.

We have emphasised the importance of students having a high quality CV and letter of introduction. They will complete their own cover e-mail and CVs in school. These must be sent to the interviewer from their school e-mail account.

Here is a video from the Mock Interviews in 2017:
