On Tuesday 9th April our Year 10 pupils took part in the Mock Interview Evening at Bury Town Hall. Each pupil completed a 15 minute interview with an employer in a formal setting. At the end of the interview our pupils were given specific feedback about their interview. Prior to the evening, all Year 10 pupils took part in a Mock Interview Evening Preparation Deeper Learning Day.
