Students get employer support to build confidence at workplace interviews

GPUTC students recently had mock interviews supported by a variety of local companies including Travelex and Baker Perkins. The Skills Service worked with local employers to bring together a team of employers who undertook practice interviews with year 10 students at the college.

Employers were really impressed by the calibre of students, and preparation they had undertaken for the session.

Athene commented ‘I was generally impressed with the students I saw, who I felt were a credit to the school’

Business volunteers are invaluable to help make the careers curriculum in secondary schools ‘real’. If you would like to know how your business could support schools locally do get in touch with Debbie Longhurst at the Skills Service
