This was a great opportunity for our students to meet some local business employees, finding out how they gained employment and about their paths from school to their present jobs.
Each company/business had a representative at a table the students were divided into groups and worked their way around the room spending 10mins with each company representative. Each group was mixed i.e. there were students from different schools; Dormers Wells, Springhallow and John Chilton.
The students then had a mock interview from the different companies.
The day was a great success allowing the students an opportunity to be with other young people they did not originally know, building relationships while learning about The World of Work, learning about skills and entry qualifications needed for various jobs while gaining an insight into the interview process.
The event was attended by many local businesses such as; K4 Security, Nandos, British Airways, NHS, McDonalds, Green Corridor, Rowntree Hilton.
