Careers Day 19/07/21
On Monday 5th July, Hewens College hosted a Careers Day for Year 10 students organised in partnership with Educational Development Trust. The students engaged in many invaluable sessions, from Curriculum Vitae (CV) preparation with support from Job Centre Plus and Mondelez International to employment speeches spearheaded by the Army, Police, Morgan Sindall, The Skanska, Costain and STRABAG (SCS) Railways, Pepper Group, Mondelez International and Job Centre Plus. This gave the students an opportunity to gain further information about some of the organisations that would be interviewing them in the afternoon as well as the roles and responsibilities of working within these different industries. Each student was interviewed by three employers who in turn gave them a wide range of insightful and specific feedback on their interview skills from an industry perspective. The students were delighted with the feedback they received from the employers, and the employers were equally delighted with the mature and well-prepared approach from our students.
