As part of the preparation for applications to college, university or work, the Academy hold a Mock Interview Day on Wednesday 18 April 2018 for ALL Year 10 students. The interviewers will be a number of Managers from local organisations and will take place in the Ellis Theatre. 

All students will be given a time slot to meet with their interviewer, and will last no more than 25 minutes.  In order to maximize the impact, students should wear smart clothing suitable for this occasion and not school uniform.   Apart from when they are attending their interview, all students will follow a normal timetable on this day.

Each student will be given a useful booklet with an example of a CV, covering letter and tips on how the make a great impression at an interview. The booklet also contains an assessment sheet showing what the interviewer will be looking for, as well as eight different job adverts from a variety of different sectors – the student needs to choose one of these jobs to pretend to apply for. Download your booklet here.

Students will write a covering letter and CV (in school). They will need to bring these along to their Mock Interview on the day. STUDENTS MUST NOT SEND THE COVERING LETTER AND CV TO THE EMPLOYER.

Experiencing a formal interview can only increase the chance of success during application processes and also prepare them for their work experience interview. 

Please support your son/daughter in preparing for Mock Interview Day – in particular, by allowing them to wear smart clothing rather than school uniform on the day.
