Students given top tips to boost their interview skills

Students at Crawshaw Academy were given valuable advice about how they can improve their interviewing techniques during a workshop that was also supported by Stuart Andrew, the Conservative Candidate for Pudsey.

The workshop is part of the Building My Skills year-long programme, facilitated by the Esh Construction Group, which aims to show the students how school work is relevant in the business world and to make the transition from education into the working world easier. 

Participating schools receive a series of interactive careers workshops run by different businesses over the course of an academic year. Subjects covered include; compiling a CV, interview preparation, mock interviews and conduct on social media. This culminates in job interview opportunities for the best performing students.

On Monday (15 May) Yorkshire Water colleagues delivered a session at Crawshaw Academy explaining how the students can improve their interview skills to ensure they get the job they’re after. Mr Andrew came along to speak to the students about his own experiences and gave them some tips on how to improve their skills. 

Abbie Hammond, who is an apprentice at Yorkshire Water and co-ordinates the programme, commented after the workshop, “We also benefit from these sessions as we can promote all the different career options, like the apprentice and graduate programmes we have at Yorkshire Water. We hope to broaden students’ minds about possible future employment and our colleagues will deliver more sessions at schools in Bradford, Skipton, Wakefield, Huddersfield and Leeds throughout the rest of this school year.”
