On 10th October Langley Grammar School students attended a 1-day Interview Workshop designed to give students an opportunity to experience a true-life interview. 
Previous to this workshop students had a CV and interview seminar conducted by one of the Learning to Work team, this allowed the students to see what they needed to include in their CV and how to act appropriately in an interview, e.g. smile, shake their hand and introduce yourself. 
Then in preparation for their Interview Day, Students picked a job description offered to them from a local company that appealed to their interests and along with a covering letter and CV this was passed to their interviewer ready for the interview. Each student received a twenty-minute interview and a ten-minute feedback session.This content will only be shown when viewing the full post.

Learning from career & labour market information 
The interviewers come from a range of local businesses and students can see what opportunities are available locally. After the interview is conducted their interviewer will give them construct criticism feedback, to help them improve for when they have a real interview. 
Encounters with employers & employees 
Each student gets interviewed by a business volunteer to give them a real-world experience. 
Experiences of workplaces 
Students are asked to come into school dressed in business dress code to bring a realistic feeling to the interview experience. This is commonly a student’s first time interacting with someone from a business environment outside their family circle. And brings a brilliant experience to a workplace interview. 
Business Volunteers that joined us on this day include:
