We recently supported Eckington School with an Employability Day. We helped their students practice for interviews, think about their personal skills, and focus on employability skills in the 21st Century workplace.
Our Training and Recruitment Officer at Rykneld Homes went along to the school to prepare the Year 11’s to become workplace ready for when they leave school, saying "Eckington School got in touch with us and invited us along to speak with the students there, I was teaching the group interview skills.
"We showed the students real Job Descriptions and Person Specifications as well as giving a presentation on interview skills. The students were really interested and asked lots of useful questions at the end.
"I interview people on a regular basis on behalf of Rykneld Homes so I was able to give real world advice to the students which hopefully they will find useful in their future careers."
Eckington School thanked us for our contribution, "The feedback we have had has been great. It is so helpful to have professionals in to help build the students employability skills."
