Mock Interviews

Mock interviews offer students their first real world experience of having an interview. They aim to improve a student’s employability and help them understand how they can best prepare for an interview. Students are able to familiarise themselves with the interview process, getting a confidence boost in the process. These are currently run in 14 secondary schools across Derby.

At a typical event, around 30 business volunteers interview a whole year group of students over a morning. Students arrive in half hour intervals and are matched with a volunteer based on their interests.
