Mock Interview Programme

On the evenings of Monday 9th and Tuesday 10th 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 6th 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 2 or 3 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 and Mrs Brown whose organization of the event helped to make it such a success.
