Bottisham Village College welcomed business volunteers from Natwest, Cambridge Commodities, the National Trust and the A14 Project on the 16th January. Representatives from each business kindly volunteered their time to provide mock interviews for Year 11 students.
Mock interviews provide a valuable opportunity for students to understand the interview process and the preparation that goes into it. Although the interviews are staged, we try to create an interview situation that is as close to reality as possible. Time is also allocated for feedback and guidance from employers to provide the students with an understanding of employer expectations.
Feedback from the students and businesses involved was both positive and encouraging.
