Mock interviews at The Warwick School
20 November - could you help?
The Warwick School carry out award-winning careers guidance and promotion. To supplement these activities, they want to give Year 11 students some practical interview experience on 20 November.  They will be holding mock job/college interviews for all for these students.

The interviews will take place every 20 minutes. Students will have been "prepared" for these interviews and will already have completed a CV which they will have at the interview.

To make the interviews as realistic as possible the School are seeking over 15 adult external "interviewers". Any background or experience in HR or Personnel roles would be great but not essential. More importantly will be the willingness to engage with the young people (aged 15/16) to give them a taste of a real interview and to experience the expectations of potential future interviewers. They will provide questions to ask and material to support the interviews.

The School have run this event for the last two years very successfully just before the students undertake interviews for their Further Education College places - with the Colleges subsequently highlighting how well the Warwick students present themselves.If you would be able to help please contact
