Making the Grade


On Wednesday 4 October, all Y12s took part in ‘Making the Grade Mock Interviews’. This involved over 25 volunteers from various employment sectors coming to Outwood Grange Academy and interviewing the students. The interviews were planned using common interview questions but in a friendly environment so that the students gain confidence and a positive experience. Each student was interviewed for 15-20 minutes and given verbal feedback immediately after. The interviewer also provided written feedback and ideas for improvement. The event was very successful, many thanks to John Paley from Careers Inc and Alex Peel from Ahead Partnership for organising it.
