Mock interviews

On Friday 7th October all S6 pupils took part in a Mock Interview, which followed on from the UCAS/Developing the Young Workforce day on 4th October. Pupils prepared application forms during PSHE and these were sent to interviewers prior to Friday, allowing them time to read the applications and formulate suitable questions.

The nine interviewers came from a variety of career backgrounds including IT, Publishing, Police, Accountancy, Electronics, Education and Science. The feedback from the interviewers was outstanding- in particular, they praised the preparation and confidence of our young people and all left our school with an extremely positive opinion of our S6 pupils: in the words of one interviewer the experience was “Life affirming.”

The pupils themselves found the experience very worthwhile and rewarding- a very practical example of how DYW is being successfully implemented in Our Lady’s High School.

Our thanks to all of our interviewers for their time and hard work.
