Mock Interview Programme 2015

On the evenings of Monday 7th and Tuesday 8th December Grosvenor’s Careers Department welcomed nearly forty representatives from business and industry to the School to participate in the delivery of its annual Mock Interview programme.

In total almost one hundred pupils in Upper Sixth took advantage of the opportunity to participate in the programme, which taught them how to write an application form, prepare for an interview, carry out an interview and, most importantly, enabled them to receive feedback regarding their performance. 

Each pupil was interviewed by two or three interviewers and faced a number of questions for 15 minutes. Pupils were then provided with written and verbal feedback on their performance.

The programme should prove invaluable to pupils as they prepare for university entrance interviews over the comings months.  Many thanks to those professionals who gave of their time to participate in the event, as well as teachers Ms Seaton (Teacher in charge of Business Links) and Mrs Brown (Head of Careers) whose organization of the event helped to make it such a success.
