Mock Interview Day

Dear Parent/Carer

As part of our PSHE/Careers programme in year 11, we are running a mock interview day for students on Thursday 9th February. Mock interview day helps students prepare for life in the wider world and is a brilliant way for them to practice and showcase key employability skills within a safe and supportive environment.

We are very lucky to be supported by over 40 local employers and we do our best to match students with an employer from a sector that they are interested in, where possible. Previous mock interview days have been hugely successful and have even led to offers of apprenticeships or employment.

We try to simulate an interview as close to real life as possible and therefore students do not have to wear their school uniform. We expect students to come smartly dressed and have discussed with them how important first impressions can be when attending an interview. 

If you have any further questions about mock interview day please don’t hesitate to contact me via email mw@poolacademy.co.uk or Steph York sy@poolacademy.co.uk Alternatively you can ring the school on 01209 712220.

Kind regards

Miss M Williams

Head of PSHE/Careers
