Mock Interviews Years 11 and 12

Well done for all your work yesterday. The employers were very impressed with  the quality of your answers and many said you were a credit to the Academy.

You will get your feedback in writing in the next few weeks

NHS Apprenticeships Information Session for Year 13 students

LEBC are running an information event for year 13 students who are interested in routes into the NHS. The Apprenticeships Team are hosting an afternoon coffee/tea and cake session where students can come along and find out about apprenticeships with one of the world’s largest employers. This will be held on Wednesday 3rd April 2019 from 4.30pm-5.30pm. Places are extremely limited so this is on a first come first served basis.

If you are interested, please email your name and school to Grace Ladkin at grace.ladkin@leics-ebc.org.uk


Mock Interview Day Years 11 and 12 tomorrow 26/02

Tomorrow from period 1-4  you will be involved in a 20 minutes mock interview with representatives from a variety of local and national employers. You should have been given a booklet by your tutor with some short activities to complete before the day. Your tutors should also have given you your time slot so you know  when your interview is. We will also email you the rota so keep checking your email. Times will also be displayed in front of MLT and  in Post 16. Interviews will be in the Main Hall but we will meet you first in the Foyer. Make sure you bring your booklet and you make a note of your time. Try and turn up a few minutes before so we can make sure you are fully prepared. This is a great opportunity for you to get experience  in job interviews and last year, the day was a big success. Good luck to you all!
