Interview Skills Workout for the Sixth Form

Posted: 11th November 2022

On Wednesday evening, Sixth Formers had the privilege of experiencing three mock interviews each, together with personalised feedback from a raft of experienced professionals. A huge thank you to our speaker Amanda Milsom who briefed students on What interviewers are looking for and to the 100 parents and friends of Channing who put them through their paces.

Students reactions’ were overwhelmingly positive:
“Having the opportunity to be interviewed by skilled professionals was invaluable. I had the
chance to display my strengths and practice interview techniques while also learning new skills I could use in my professional future.” (Anika A,Year 13).

“The evening was an invaluable opportunity which helped raise my confidence in my interview skills and provided a safe space for us to try, make mistakes and learn in an encouraging environment”. (Miranda G,Year 13)

After presenting themselves and tackling a range of challenging questions, students went away far better prepared for work experience, university entry and job interviews than they arrived, armed with valuable individual feedback to reflect on and put to good use in their exciting futures ahead.
