Practice Interviews at Westgate School

Following on from our successful Personal Development session at Henry Beaufort School in Winchester, Winchester Rotary, in conjunction with our partner EBP South, recently conducted interview training for students at Westgate Secondary School, Winchester.

Over a 5 day period in January 2024, a combination of professional coaches from EBP, Winchester Rotarians and local volunteers with a range of business skills and experience provided 1 to 1 interview training for all Year 10 pupils at Westgate Secondary School, in preparation for their Sixth Form College interviews in Year 11.

This involved giving feedback back on each pupil’s application form and modelling examples of best practices when writing letters of application.  The students also participated in interviews designed to encourage them to reflect on and talk about their academic skills and their wider personal experiences, all of which will help them achieve their goals and ambitions and overcome their fears.
