Year 13 Enrichment Interview Day

Year 13 Enrichment Interview Day

On Thursday 29th November our Y13 students were provided with the opportunity of a mock interview in order to prepare themselves for either the world of work or higher education.

Students spent time ensuring their CV’s and Personal Statements were up to date and truly reflected their skills and achievements.

Feedback from the interviewers was that many of them would have been happy to offer permanent positions within their organisation had this been a real-life scenario.

The event involved representatives from outside organisations including two of our governors, The Amazing Apprenticeships team, University of Hertfordshire, YC Hertfordshire, TSB bank, Tesco Legal Department, Intu-Watford and West Herts College.

The students were offered valuable feedback on their interview skills, quality of CV and personal statement and were given guidance for improvement where necessary.

The following comments were passed on by two of our visitors:-

“I really enjoyed it and the students were an absolute credit to the school.”

“It was a joy to meet so many of your students, they all had a great energy and were incredibly talented. I hope it helped them along the way!”

Feedback from students included:-

“Thank you for setting this up for me I now feel much more confident about how I am coming across and picked up useful tips”

“I really enjoyed my interview and took the opportunity to come  back at lunchtime and network with the interviewers”.
