Year 10 students from Ernulf Academy got the chance to develop important life skills, improve their employability and build their confidence with mock interviews which were conducted by volunteers from local businesses.
Students sat down with individual employers for a 15-minute mock interview, which closely resembles a real interview. Afterwards, the students received feedback on their performance and areas they could improve on for the future.
Support came from a wide range of industry professionals including construction, banking, civil service and colleges.
Sarah Legg the Environment Manager for Laing O’Rourke said, “It was great to be able to see a change in confidence of the students from the beginning of the session to the end.”
