Work Experience and Mock Interviews

Dear Parents/Guardians,

We hope this letter finds you safe and well. We are writing to you in relation to TY work experience and mock interviews. We were delighted to welcome back our TY students after the Easter break following a most successful and busy second term. 

 As you are aware all TY students completed a final work experience block last week Monday April 15th – Friday April 19th 2024. Students should return their completed work experience diary which is in their portfolio to Ms. Savage by Wednesday April 24th. There is also a section in the work experience diary for parents/guardians to complete in relation to work experience, this can be found on page 42 of the TY portfolio. 

Tuesday April 23rd all TYs will attend a mock interview here in school. There will be no classes for TYs that day. Several students have not yet sent their CV for interview to their career guidance teacher. Please ensure your son/daughter has sent their CV to either Ms. Canty ([email protected]) or Ms. Brooks ([email protected]).
