Year 11 Only - Mock Interviews


20 January 2021

Dear Parent/Carer

One of the most important activities in our Careers Programme is the Mock Interview. Traditionally, this has taken place in the school library with up to 15 employers, training providers and HE/FE representatives interviewing all of our Year 11 over 3 days.

We have had to re-plan the pattern this year in light of Covid-19 restrictions and the school risk assessment and have set aside 6 days 8th, 9th, 10th, 22nd, 23rd and 24th February.

The recent lockdown and move to remote learning has further complicated our planning.

We are in the process of contacting our interviewers to find out how many are still able to participate if the current restrictions are still in place in February.

We are now asking if your son/ward will be able to participate from home. In order to do this he will need a device with a camera and microphone (a mobile phone will do if no other option is available), your permission and to have submitted his CV (the deadline was 19th January). A member of staff will shadow the online interview for safeguarding purposes. Our hope is that we can get as many students as possible covered on the planned dates with an offer later in the year for others. Your son/ward WILL NOT miss out.

If you have any queries please do not hesitate to get in touch.

I should be grateful if you would return the following information no later than:
Monday 25th January 2021

Please follow the link to the online form to give permission for your son to take part
