Yesterday we saw 12 year 10 students and 6 year 12 students partake in a ‘speed networking’ formatted careers session. This consisted of 2 sessions which involved CV formatting and advice, interviewing techniques and advice on what businesses look for in potential employees. The second session involved visitors from 20 local businesses interviewing the students, all students impeccably represented the school and took some positive, productive and proactive learning material from this session.
This programme was used as an opportunity for students to gain some vital first hand experience as to what businesses are looking for and how to professionally cope and handle interview situations.
Well done to all students who were involved and managed to take away solid experience from this unique opportunity.
Head of Year 10.
