Whitworth Community High School teachers sing the praises of the CEIAG Mock Interview Day

Transport Training Academy is not only committed to the long-term future of the logistics industry, but also wholly dedicated to helping and inspiring young people to fulfil their true potential. To that end, members of the TTA team have been visiting and participating in work-related events at local schools and colleges over the last month. The aim of these events was to raise awareness about the industry and to promote the viability of careers in logistics as part of the Careers Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) programme.

One such visit involved Lee Stewart, TTA’s Head of Teaching, Learning and Quality. Lee attended Whitworth Community High School on Friday 10th March, Lee, along with other companies and managers like Amanda George of Neales Waste Management in Blackburn, and conducted a series of mock-interviews with Year 10 and 11 students. The purpose of the mock-interviews was to give students a taster of what real-life interviews were like and better prepare them for a life in work.

The day was generally agreed to have been a great success all round. The students seemed to enjoy the experience and hopefully will have learned some very valuable lessons, and the instructors found the whole experience fulfilling. Whitworth Community High School staff members were very pleased with the day’s events. Laura Grenaghan, IAG Officer at Whitworth College sent the following message to all business participants:

‘Thank you so much for your time, support and advice on Friday 10 March at Whitworth Community High School Mock Interview Day.  On behalf of [myself], Head, Gill Middlemas, and Deputy Head, Phil Donoghue, we can’t thank you enough for the time and support you gave.’

‘It is so important to prepare our young people for the world of work, and your input as a local employer is invaluable in helping us to achieve this.  The day was a huge success, and although students were very nervous, their sense of achievement afterwards was wonderful to witness.’

‘They have all learned some very valuable lessons such as how important preparation is.  They have all gained more confidence and a deeper understanding of labour market information through researching your company in preparation for the day.  They now feel more confident as they approach college and apprenticeship interviews in the Autumn term, and it’s all thanks to you giving up your time and being willing to give something back.’
