Newquay Tretherras is committed to trying to close the gap between education and the world of work. The aim of our Year 11 Mock Interviews is to do just that by giving our students a taste of life outside school.
We are lucky enough to have strong links with many local businesses and we were delighted to have welcomed them in to school again on Thursday 3rd October 2019. All the companies were very impressed with our students, using words like ‘confident’ and ‘engaged’ to describe them. Some even said that, had it been a real situation, they would be offering Newquay Tretherras students a job!
Mrs Henry, Careers Lead Teacher at Newquay Tretherras and oganiser of the event said, “Our students always come out of these interviews smiling and feeling more confident. It gives them something to aim for in the future and also an idea of what to expect from a real interview. I strongly believe it is an invaluable experience.”
Newquay Tretherras would like to thank all the companies that gave up their time to come in and support us with this annual event.
