A number of industry professionals came in to spend time with Bassingbourn Village College’s Year 11 students, preparing them for their forthcoming college and apprenticeship interviews.

Each student took part in a mock interview session, after which they were given feedback for their interviewer as to how they might improve their technique when it comes to the real thing.

The event was organised by Form the Future and we were delighted to hear how impressive our students were.

FtF’s Charlotte Steggall said: “We are always impressed by students at Bassingbourn Village College and the students taking part in the mock interviews were no different.

“Volunteers from companies such as PA Consulting, Google and Mathworks commented on how much they enjoyed speaking with the students, learning about the amazing skills and talents they have.

“One person even commented on how the interaction helped her have a much more positive impression of young people in general – she expected students to be scruffy, looking at their phones the whole time!

“Feedback from the students showed that the activity helped them feel more confident and prepared for their futures.”
