Leicestershire Cares Mock Interviews

January 2016

Year 11 students did themselves proud again with their individual mock interviews. All the students approached this event with a mature and confident attitude, highlighting why the 2015-2016 cohort of Year 11 students are expected to achieve great things. There were volunteers from a wide range of local and national businesses who had given up their time to put the students through an interview process. Each volunteer spent around 20 minutes asking the students questions which they may face in any interview situation. All students were then given a feedback sheet, detailing what they did well, and suggesting ways to improve their techniques. Each volunteer then chose their Star Candidate Award who they felt performed best on the day.  Here are the names of the students who were chosen for the award:-
