Providing students with the experience of an interview that is as realistic as practically possible. Interviews can be tailored to be either generic or job related and are conducted by local business people.
Interviews are ideally held at the premises of a supporting business to give pupils the added dynamic of locating and getting to an interview on time.
Alternately, or if the cohort numbers are just too large interviews can be held at the school or a local venue, with visiting businesses providing on-site support.
Curriculum Enhancement Activities

Company Visits - small groups of students visit local companies as part of an agreed support framework for a partuicular curriculum topic. Suitable for any age or year group, visits are tailor-made following a meeting with the relevant lead in school and a nominated business contact.

Education Business Partnership liaise with employers on behalf of schools to ensure that defined curriculum needs are met and to brief a company on arrangements and expectastions for their visit to the school.
CV and application forms workshops

All Education Business Partnership CV workshops are directly supported by employers, usually from HR or recruiting sectors, helping students to understand how to write an effective CV and helping ensure their CV will stand out from the crowd.
