Last week, 24 of our 6th Form students participated in mock interviews which were held via Zoom in order to prepare them for life after St George’s. They were interviewed by a panel, which included school Governors, Juliet -our Head of 6th Form, Leon our School Business Manager and a Manager from Fidelity, Ian Urry.
They prepared for this by participating in an online workshop on interview skills and had written letters of application and C.Vs for a specific job which was of interest to them.
Despite some nerves at the thought of their first interview, all of the students did fantastically well and it was great to see how their confidence had grown. They all looked so smart and had made such an effort to dress to impress, it was a real pleasure to see them present themselves so well.
Ian Urry said in his email following the interviews:
I thought they all were amazing and were a credit to themselves and the school. I thoroughly enjoyed it- it really was a pleasure to be asked.
Please thank all of the students for being so warm and accommodating and wish them all good luck for their futures.
Each of the students who participated have received feedback from their interviews and a certificate.
