KS5 Final Destination Group

Over the past few weeks the KS5 Final Destination Group have been practicing interview techniques. This culminated in a mock interview held in the meeting room. This experience was further enhanced by the interviewer being a teacher who was unknown to the pupils. Practising the interviews beforehand in a group enabled the pupils to really think about the questions that they could be asked. In addition, pupils were asked to wear appropriate clothing and bring along any supporting documentation and portfolios. Overall the exercise was enjoyed by all and has given the pupils valuable experience for their next steps in their careers.
