Year 11 Employability Skills Day – Friday, 16th November 2018


Dear Parent or Guardian

Year 11 Enrichment Day, 16th November 2018

Employability Skills Day and English Speaking & Listening Presentation

The theme of this enrichment day for year 11 is ‘employability skills’ and this important day will help students to prepare for leaving school. There will be a combination of workshops and a 1:1 interview with a member of the business or education community.

The Programme for the day includes: Preparation for Interview, 1:1 Interview, Advice & Guidance, Introduction to Apprenticeships and Higher Education Workshops plus an English Speaking & Listening Presentation.

The Preparation for Interview Workshop will cover the following points:

  1. GCSE’s and predicted grades, listing 3 subjects they enjoy and why (from their latest screening).
  2. Interviewing tips.
  3. Hobbies, skills and personal qualities, either in or out of school, listing 3 skills they have and why and 2 personal qualities and why

We want to provide our students with a realistic interview experience and therefore we are asking students to dress smartly for the day and some guidelines are below:

  • School rules apply regarding accessories, ie no jewellery, nail varnish, make-up etc.
  • Smart clothes suitable for formal interviews
  • Boys: school trousers, shirt and a different tie if possible (no school jumper).
  • Girls: Skirt, dress or trousers (school trousers are acceptable) with a smart top.
  • Students are welcome to wear a variation of this if it is suitable for an interview.

We hope that this day provides your child with invaluable information to prepare them for leaving school.

Yours sincerely

R Ramsden

Director of Learning
