Year 10 job interviews

09 Jul 2013

Year 10 pupils have been learning important life skills this week at the Royal Alexandra and Albert School. As part of the School’s ‘World of Work’ programme, the 15 year olds have completed job applications forms, written a CV and been interviewed by real employers.

Headmaster Paul D Spencer Ellis said “We wanted to give pupils a realistic impression of what is involved when applying for a job. They now have a much better idea of how to present themselves, both on paper and in person. I am very grateful to the employers, governors and staff who have taken the time out of their busy schedules to be the interviewers.”

The interviews took place in Gatton Hall, the stately home in the School grounds. Pupils, who dressed smartly for the occasion, were interviewed for 10 minutes and then received 5 minutes feedback.
