'I took part in an employability skills course. This course was led by Sarah Finnigan. It was a great experience and I would recommend this course to other students wanting to have a good interview. I learnt how to fill in an application form, do a C.V. and had an interview which was very successful. I really enjoyed it and would love to do it again.'
'In the employability skills course I learnt how to act duirng interviews and wrote a C.V. I thought my interview went really well because I did everything we discussed in those lessons. I can prove this because they sent back some good feedback.'
'I found this programme helpful because I learnt about things like not to judge people before knowing about them. I also found filling in the C.V. was helpful as well and when Sarah researched the different types of jobs for our chosen one, I found that helpful because it told me what I would be required to do with the children.'
'I think this programme was really helpful to me. It helped me do everything I needed for an interview and I would recommend this to future groups as it will help them get more prepared.'
'I knew a bit about interviews already, but learnt a couple of things I had never thought of before and that really helped me in the practice interview and will help me in the future.'
