Answering questions was the order of the day for Year 11s taking part in Mock Interviews at MCMA today.  A range of businesses and organisations invested valuable time in Year 11 students, by acting as Interviewers in the role play.

Interviews are stressful, but something everyone has to face sooner or later.  Taking part in a mock or practice interview helps to reduce anxiety, highlights what you’re doing well and allows you to get constructive feedback.

The organisations and individuals that supported the Mock Interview day included:

  • The Manchester College
  • KPMG
  • Lend Lease
  • Mantra Learning
  • The Sharp Project
  • Manchester University
  • Farah Mohannaelbhai
  • Hopwood Hall College
  • Salford City College
  • Oldham Sixth Form College
  • ENER-G
  • The Army
  • Laing O’Rourke
    • Specialist Ceiling Services Ltd
    • RR Engineering Ltd
    • Naomi Jahoda
    • Jean Rose
    • Keith Walton Brickwork Limited
    • Royal Navy

For Year 11s planning a move to Sixth Form, College or Apprenticeship the activity could not have come at a better time and it was clear the students enjoyed and benefitted from the experience.  Selections of pupil comments below testify to this:

“I really loved my interview.”

“It was great.”

“The interviewer helped a lot, gave me further ideas for the future.”

“Thanks for the experience.”

“To be confident expressing myself, no need to get nervous.”

“The interviewer was beyond amazing.”

“The guy was really helpful and gave me a lot of good advice.”

“I enjoyed the experience.”
