Wilmington Academy – Getting ready for employment…


Applying for jobs or a university placement can be daunting, however, like most journeys, a little planning can help make the experience a positive one.

With this in mind, as part of Wilmington Academy’s Year 12 Project Based Learning Week, students took part in mock interviews, which required them to apply to fictitious job roles in the creative, engineering, and business sectors.  Interviewers were recruitment specialists and really put the students through their paces.

A big thank you to all our interviewers: Daniel Goodwin, Katie Dine, Hilary Connelly (Sugarman Education), Alan Fletcher (Alan Fletcher Solutions), Rob Brack (Adgistics), and Chris Morley (Congreve IT Solutions).

Congratulations to all students who took part, and in particular, our stand out winning candidates: Jordan Keating, James Shrubb, Lewis Holmes, Chloe Mann, Kieran Bennett, and Emma Farren.
