In July, Foundation VCAL students participated in mock interviews as part of their Work Related Skills unit. The interviews were a huge success with students finding the exercise to be a valuable learning activity. Students were given example job advertisements for apprenticeship positions and then prepared a resume and cover letter that was relevant to one ‘sample apprenticeship position’ they were interested in. As part of the preparation for the mock interviews, students investigated employability skills, body language, good and bad interview skills and how to dress for an interview, with the results speaking for themselves. Representatives from the local community were invited to participate in the activity and act as the interviewers. We are very grateful for the support of the following individuals who volunteered their time to support our students: Ann McGrath, Sheahan Dhasan, Ruud Boegheim (from Cimpress), Chris Hoang (from Anmar Group) Robin Lockington (from Brimbank Melton LLEN).
