Online mock interviews hailed a success
An interviewer who took part in South Bromsgrove High School’s mock interview day for Year 11 said that the concept, and standard of the students, had set the benchmark for others to follow.
In previous years, representatives from local business and enterprise have visited the school to conduct one-to-one interviews so that all 335 Y11 students could experience and practice in what can be quite a stressful situation. This year, with COVID restrictions in place, the school moved the whole exercise online. Students joined the interviewers for a video call lasting up to 20 minutes that included questions, feedback on performance and advice for the future.
