Dear Parents/ Carers,
Year 11 Mock Interview Day – FRIDAY 29 NOVEMBER 2019
On Friday 29th November your daughter/son will have the opportunity to have two mock interviews with external, experienced interviewers. This gives your daughter/son the chance to get feedback on their CVs and personal statements which they can then use to help them in their real applications to colleges or for apprenticeships. This has been a very successful activity in the past because our students have taken very seriously the opportunity of an interview as close to the real thing as we can make it. Feedback is given to the student by the interviewer at the end of the interview which has proved to help in developing confidence.
Your daughter/son is invited to attend school in ‘professional attire’ as if attending a real interview. She/he will be given a time to come out of their normal lessons to attend the interviews in the school hall; otherwise the normal school timetable will continue.
Between now and early January, one-to-one individual careers advice meetings will be taking place where your daughter/son will be able to explore their options on leaving Leytonstone School next summer and create an action plan.
Following the very successful college roadshow last month we are running an apprenticeship awareness event in early January 2020.
I am sure that our students will value their experience of the mock interviews and continue the proud reputation we have with employers from past interview days.
