Local Employers Boost Students' Job & Interview Skills

Local Employers Boost Students' Job & Interview Skills

As part of our whole school Enterprise Day on March 13th leading local businesses and organisations will be coming in to help BACA students build their understanding of the world of work and confidence in jobs interviews.

To date representatives from Southern Water, Uber, Sussex University, Shoreham Port Authority, iCrossing, ThoughtShift, Rix And Hay Solicitors, Martin Searle Solicitors, History Heroes, Level Up Nutrition, The Good Business Club and Albion In The Community have signed up for a special day's events, which will include mock job interviews for our Year 9 students.

James Collett, Vice Principal and Academy Lead on Enterprise and Entrepreneurship said: "The chance to experience real interviews with business professionals from a wider range of organisation is absolutely invaluable for our students. It boosts confidence and can give an insight into career opportunities they may not have been aware of or thought they could achieve. We are so grateful to the business people who have already agreed to give their time on the 13th to help our young people, but we are still keen to sign-up some more."
