According to the CBI (Education & Skills Survey, June 2012) 71% of employers believe schools and colleges should be prioritising the development of employability skills as employers regularly find young people lacking in those vital employability skills that can help them succeed in the workplace.
97% of students who took part in our 2013 interview skills workshops said they felt more confident as a result.
Share your Knowledge
Skills for Work workshops give young people the chance to learn and practice specific work-related skills such as CV writing, interview skills and communication skills. Business volunteers facilitate practical activities with small groups of young people, equipping them with these essential skills and giving them the chance to practice them.
I really enjoyed the interviews as they gave us an insight into what it’s actually like to apply for a job.

Students benefit hugely from this practical, hands-on approach. In 2013 97% of students who took part in our interview skills workshops said they felt more confident in an interview setting as a result.
Business volunteers gain too. We will help you deliver activities and you will get the chance to share your knowledge and expertise as well as develop your own communication and facilitation skills.
You can shape the future workforce and guide them to becoming more suitable candidates for employment.
The best part was the interview because I enjoyed it and I learnt how to improve my interview skills.
