The Hertfordshire and Essex High School, Bishop's Stortford
Tuesday 6th November 2012

On Tuesday 6th November, 160 Year 10 students will be spending the day preparing for their work experience.

As part of this preparation each student will need to participate in a 10 minute mock interview with a member of the business community. This was carried out last year and had such positive feedback from the students and employers.

We have found that the interviews improve students' communication skills, build confidence and your input will help them to put together more effective CVs. Overall the aim is to build-up their employability skills and to help them in the future when they are being interviewed for University or work.
The mock interviews will be taking place all day but are split into three sessions –
9.15am - 11.00am 11.20am-1.20pm  2.20pm-3.15pm.

You do not have to attend for the whole day, a couple of hours of your time will be gratefully appreciated and each interview is for approximately 10 minutes, with a five minute debrief. You will be supplied with everything you need to run the interviews, so there is no preparation on your behalf required.

If you would like to offer your time to help with these intervies, please contact Wendy Gordon either by email or telephone 07792 022803.
