A huge well done to the Year 11 students for conducting themselves so well at their employer mock interviews this week. Also, a very big thank you to the employers who gave their time to support us with this worthwhile project. Employers included Babcock, Ministry of Defence, Thomas Westcott Chartered Accountants, Kier Construction, Engie, KPG Chambers, Royal Navy, Army, NHS, Plymouth University, Makers HQ, Service Design Solution, Discovery College and our own ECC Trustees.
Employer feedback has been very positive, and it is fabulous to see the students’ confidence grow whilst talking to employers. The interviews have added context to their classroom learning and the importance of achieving the right grades to allow them to progress into the pathways they wish to follow. Students are now aware of their strengths and areas they can improve on to ensure when they attend an actual interview, they will be well prepared.
