Mock Interview Day - Can you help?

Posted on 10/02/2020

Each Year Samuel Ryder Academy hold a mock interview day; this opportunity for students to have a mock interview with an employer is a valuable experience which really helps them prepare for ‘the real thing’. We have run these skills sessions for many years and they have proved to be an enjoyable and useful experience for both students and employers who, of course, make these days possible for which we are very grateful. Running a day of mock interviews can help raise a company’s profile with students as the day is advertised through our various media platforms.

 

With student numbers increasing at Samuel Ryder we have changed the format of the day and invited Year 10 following their work experience week in March this year.  We believe this initial contact will help to consolidate confidence and communication skills they have built during work experience.  We believe the more encounters students have with employers the more equipped for life beyond school they will become.

 

The day is scheduled to run from 9.00am and 1.00pm on Thursday 2nd April.  Each interview will be allocated approximately 30 minutes to allow time for questions and then completion of the feedback form. The debriefing sessions are a fabulous opportunity for us to feed constructive advice to the young people in preparation for future career progression and therefore we take the information you provide very seriously.  The students are currently writing their CV which will be on the desk when you arrive in the morning.  The interview is completely neutral and students should not be expected to have knowledge of the interviewer’s company. We ask that questions are mainly competency based and are of the sort that could be asked at interview with any company. Students do not often prepare for such areas as commercial awareness, body language, etc so these can make ideal themes for the mock interviews. Students are advised that questions posed may be drawn from the information provided in their CV, to support the process we will send sample questions in advance of the day. Students should be encouraged to ask questions during this feedback period as well as expecting the interviewer to give useful tips

 

We continually endeavour to offer new and different opportunities to develop employability skills to the students as suggested by the Gatsby Benchmarks; a framework of 8 guidelines that define the best careers provision in schools and colleges.  This day forms part of a series of events students will participate in to encounter different employers. 

 

If you would be kind enough to offer your time this year, we would be very grateful for your time and commitment to the school.  If you would please email me to confirm if you are able to participate in the event h.potter@samuelryderacademy.co.uk.
