“You’re Hired!” - Year 11 Practice Interviews
Local employers have been teaming up with Year 11 students from The Coleshill School as part of the academy’s annual Practice Interview Day
Year 11 students ‘dressed to impress’ in smart business wear for their practice interviews. Outside companies including: BMW, Sertec, Kuehne & Nagel, NHS, Elevation and Clive Marks conducted the interviews which students had prepared for by completing formal application forms. The 30 minute interviews were conducted just like ‘the real thing’ with structured questions about themselves including their predicted grades, outside interests and work experience.
For most of the students it was their first interview and a really important and valuable learning experience for them. Feedback from both students and employers was really positive and everyone enjoyed the day and gained something from taking part. It was a great experience for our students in preparing them with the skills they will require when starting in the workplace.
Headteacher Ian Smith-Childs said: “Our students really benefit from taking part in the interviews, especially with such a crucial life changing time ahead. They took feedback and considered this to support them with their future endeavours.”
“We would like to thank all the companies and their representatives for taking part and we look forward to welcoming them back to school in the future.”
