Year 13 Enrichment / Interview Day

On Thursday 1st December 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.

We were delighted to welcome representatives from a number of external organisations including Align Engineering who are managing the HS2 project, Danny Sullivan Construction, Aldenham Parish Council,Hertfordshire County Council, Watford Palace Theatre, Grimsdyke Hotel, Bushey Grove Leisure Centre, Watford Football Club, West Herts College, Rendel Engineering and Design Company and Hertfordshire Services for Young People.

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 our visitors:-

“It was a fantastic day with some very well put together young people who will be going far, the overall quality of interviews were very impressive”

“It was a pleasure to meet yr13 students and to hear of their aspirations. They conducted their interviews in a professional manner and hopefully learned from their experience.”

“It was a pleasure interviewing them. They were all so mature and measured in their responses. I really enjoyed talking to such bright prospects. They were a real credit to your school.”

“I really enjoyed my day. I was very impressed by the way the students presented themselves, the clarity in their answers and the thought they had put into what they want to go on to study at University.”

“Thank you also for the organisation on the day – I felt very prepared and supported with the materials you supplied.”

· Feedback from students included:-

“I found it interesting to talk to the interviewers and found the feedback sheets very helpful”

“It was a really good experience and nice to be interviewed by adults who were not from school”

“Thank you for setting this up for me I really enjoyed it and feel far more confident for my next interview”

The day was a resounding success with our students making us very proud of them.
