Late November has seen MCMA’s Year 11 put through their paces in the academy’s annual mock interview day. The day allows the students to experience an interview with a real interviewer, ahead of college and apprenticeship interviews. The opportunity allowed the Year 11s to get feedback on what they did well and any areas for improvement.

Interviews can be stressful events, but at some everyone has to take part in one. MCMA received great support from local businesses, training providers, colleges and universities, who allowed their staff to act as interviewers including:

  • Army
  • Capita
  • Jean Rose of Trafford Healthwatch
  • KPMG
  • Oldham Sixth Form College
  • MANTRA Training
  • Manchester Metropolitan University
  • Manchester University
  • Manchester Working
  • New Economy
  • Outreach Community Services
  • Salford City College
  • Skills Solutions
  • The Manchester College
  • University College Oldham


The students got a lot out of the event as the comments below illustrate:

“I enjoyed the experience”

“I really enjoyed the experience”

“Very kind welcoming people”

“Really helped me know how to prepare”

“I feel more confident about interviews and speaking to people I need to impress”

“I enjoyed it I just need to work on confidence”

“I am more prepared”

“It was enjoyable, very worthwhile”

“This has been really brilliant experience”

“Made me confident and even more ambitious”
