National Apprentice Week - Pupils practiced and revised their interview skills
Wednesday 23 February 2022
Apprenticeship week allowed students to learn not only the basic knowledge about interviews (how to dress, how to carry yourself, be on time), but really useful guidance around how to answer questions, and how to make your answers detailed in order to link to the job's specification.
Students were given lots of ways that they can describe their skills and talents using their hobbies, and the correct ways to speak about their challenges and achievements.
Before role playing interviews, students scripted out their answers to questions that they might face so they felt confident and prepared. These skills will be useful in countless ways in the future.
