The students completed their application forms and CV’s which were sent to local employers who then conducted mock interviews with the students on the 10th December. 

Our students did us proud!  They worked hard to overcome initial nerves and put in a professional performance that impressed the employers.  Students will receive individual written feedback in the New Year which will provide each of them with a valuable insight into how to improve their interview skills in the future giving Shelfield students a competitive edge in the world of work.

We would like to extend our thanks and appreciation to the Walsall Education Business Partnership for their support and coordination of the event and in turn the business supporters who generously gave up their time to help our students.
