Nine of our members worked with Bishops Luffa School to give over 200 14 - 16 ear olds interview experience in association with leading employers in the area. Thirty-three professionals from eight organisations such as Lewis Brownlee, Chichester Festival Theatre, Rolls-Royce, John Lewis, Marks & Spencer, Chichester District Council, The Sussex Pub Company and Irwin Mitchell Solicitors contributed their valuable time to the project.
The students who had little or no experience of Interviews gained enormously in confidence following a difficult peiod during the Pandemic.
"This was a really positive result and our students benefitted from growing confidence and knowing what to do in an interview." Mr Hindman, Head Teacher, Bishops Luffa School.
It was really helpful to have the opportunity to find out what it is like to undertake an interview and the sorts of questions that we are likely to be asked. It will certainly help me in the future when I start having job interviews." Year 10 Student.
