Mock Interviews

Mock interviews allow students to experience a ‘real-life’ interview, with a local employer. Students are asked standard interview questions which provide them with an opportunity to practise their answers and develop their technique. Volunteers are supplied with pre-prepared questions to ask the students and go on to provide feedback so that students understand how they can better prepare for an interview in the future.

At a typical event, around 25 volunteers from local businesses interview a whole year group of students. This takes place over the course of a morning and volunteers conduct approximately 6-8 interviews each.
