Year 12 Mock Interviews

Dear Parents/Carers,

On Tuesday July 9th 2019 all pupils in Year 12 are going to be undertaking a mock interview with representatives from RCT Employment Education and Training Team & Coleg Y Cymoedd, Aberdare. This is part of their Careers and World of Work Education in Sixth Form.

They will be out of school for about ½ an hour attending their interview and will be given an appointment time between 9:00 am and 1:25 pm. Their interview will take place at Coleg Y Cymoedd, Aberdare Campus.

Pupils will have to make their own, unsupervised, way to the college on foot from school. They will not be supervised whilst travelling between school and college. They should use the underpass between the Ynys site and Cwmbach Road, using the appropriate safe crossing points to reach the college site at the bottom of Abernant Road. A member of staff will be based in the college throughout the day to ensure the smooth running of the interviews.

Ideally, this is a compulsory event as part of your child’s career related education and can form a valid preparation for higher education and future employment prospects. Thorough and personalised feedback will be given based upon the interview undertaken.

I would be grateful if you would complete the consent form sent home with your child and return it to school with your son/daughter as soon as possible for him/her to attend this event.

As it is a formal interview occasion, then we would ask that your son/daughter dress appropriately for a formal interview. This should mean dressing professionally for a work-based setting. Formal wear rather than jeans or casual wear should be worn to the interview.

Thank you for your co-operation in this matter.

Yours sincerely,

Mr C. Lovell

Assistant Head
