Year 11 Mock Interview Day 2016 – Preparing Our Students for Post 16 Opportunities

On Friday 9th December 2016 Year 11 students took part in our mock interview day. This was a fantastic opportunity for our students to get that much needed interview practice before they go off to the Hucknall Sixth Form Centre, college or work based training course. The interviews started during the first lesson with the students very eager and armed with their CV’s and record of achievement.  All the students that took part in the interviews looked very smart and presentable and ready to have an interview with our outside providers.
