Careers programme at Coombeshead Academy
As part of the ongoing careers programme at Coombeshead Academy, Y11 students are taking part in a mock job interview with a local employer today. The purpose of the interview is to prepare students applying for jobs, training and future post GCSE courses, as well as building their confidence and improving their communication skills. Students have prepared a CV in preparation for their interview and have been put through their paces with a local employer. Each student will be provided with detailed feedback based on confidence in answering questions, confidence and body language. All students are representing Coombeshead Academy brilliantly and the feedback from employers has been overwhelmingly positive. We are sure that this experience will be extremely important as we continue to support students in to making their transition into the wider working world. We would like to say an enormous thank you to the employers that have given up their time to support this event.
If you have experience in leading interviews and feel that you could contribute to future interview events, or indeed know somebody that could volunteer their time, we would be extremely pleased to hear from you. If you are able to give some time for all/ part of a day please contact Anna Salmons (Curriculum Team Leader for Life Skills) on: firstname.lastname@example.org
