Frome College Mock Interviews held each year

Frome College Mock Interviews

FROME COLLEGE MOCK INTERVIEWS

Students at Frome Community College are given a mock interview.  The students presented a cv and were interviewed for 15 minutes by a panel of two employers.  There were twenty six panels in operation over the two days. The interview was followed by an informal discussion between the employers and the student on the outcome of the interview.  On the second day of the interviews an excellent lunch was provided for the employers by the Hospitality students as in important part of their course.

The mock interviews were set up by Frome Rotary Club in 2010 and organised by the Club for the first 5 years during which time it became part of the Year 10 curriculum. There are now over 90 interviewers on the register who are prepared to give their time to supporting these young people.  Although still supported and sponsored by the Club, in 2015 the organisation was transferred to “Next Steps”, a partnership between Frome College and Frome Town Council whose motto is “Linking Education and Employment”. 

The scheme is very highly regarded by employers, staff and by the participating students.  Frome Rotary Club is proud to have set up a scheme which should benefit many young people in the future.
