Year 10 Interviews

As part of our programme of continuing Careers Advice and Guidance, Year 10 students were put through their paces this week as they took part in a face-to-face interview. Students were matched to an interviewer from a wide variety of employment sectors based on the information they gave when writing an application form a few weeks ago. Visitors from Microsoft, Sellafield, KPMG and Network Rail were among 44 professionals who visited over the past couple of days.

Students had been planning for some time and had attended sessions on interview technique and body language, and their endeavour certainly paid off. Initial nerves were cast aside as students settled into productive and animated conversations.

Everyone will receive individual feedback from their interviewer in due course but judging by the feedback so far, it seems as though everyone has more than risen to the occasion. Well done Year 10 – I am proud of you!
