Dallam School Yr 11 Interview Day
Over 150 Year 11 students had the opportunity for individual interview experience.  Students presented the interviewer with their CV, experienced real interview questions and then got valuable feedback from the interviewer on what they did well and where to make improvements.  This is part of Dallam’s ongoing careers guidance programme to help students gain skills for work and to understand more about the recruitment processes companies use.  Interview days give our students some experience and knowledge of what to expect to give them confidence when the real time comes when applying for jobs or university or apprenticeship places.
Interview Day for Year 11s
Following the Year 11 interviews in the morning, in the afternoon around 170 Year 10 students had the opportunity to talk to six different organisations and also to reflect on their career direction and their personal skills.  When our Year 10s move into Year 11, they will participate in CV writing workshops and experience ‘interview day’ for themselves.

We would like to thank the individuals and organisations that gave their time for this valuable, real-world, educational experience.
