Mock Interviews for Year 10

This week Year 10 took part in a Mock Interview; most students had prepared CVs which were used by the interviewer to help quiz and question students about their strengths and weaknesses, aspirations, plans for work experience, and their skills and qualities.  The interviewers were extremely complimentary about the students’ ability to communicate and how inspirational many of them were.  Well done to Year 10 for creating such a good impression about themselves and to Mrs Hudson for organising the event.  Thanks also to our supporting business, university and college partners, and local Rotarians who gave up valuable time, and in some cases travelled many miles, to be a part of the interviewing team: 

Rotary: John Murphy, Brian Aston, Roger Burrows, Nigel Oakley, Robert Preedy, Peter Roswell, John Thatcher, Paul Jenkins, Brian Kirkup, John Hinton & Robin Forsey

Babcock International: Andrew Gillespie, Christa Marsh, Victoria Cope & William Pope

Sue Harding Consultancy:  Sue Harding

Aberystwyth University:  Harriet Greatrex

Police:  PC Penelope Gatenby

Dr Barry Cripps

GKN Aerospace: Richard Hooper, Vijay Sahadevan, Yousef Osman & Natasha Dawes

Bridgwater College: Sara Jones & Penny Venn

Weston College, NSETC and UCW: JJ Clark, Emma Cox, Louisa Pinkstone, Sarah Jarvie, Jackie Fielding & Hamish Gilpin

The confidence and experience of this week will no doubt help in the preparation for work experience week later this term.
