Wednesday 10th January was a busy day for careers at Felpham Community College. In the morning, FCC hosted the final year 11 Mock Interviews. Following their CV writing last term, all year 11 students at Felpham were invited to attend a mock interview, to give them some experience of what to expect for a real interview and how to sell themselves. Students did brilliantly, with lots enjoying their interview and coming out feeling positive, after initially being dubious about attending!
Following these, the school held the first Careers Carousel for year 9 students. Students worked in small groups to discuss careers and opportunities, with a wide range of volunteers working their way round the student groups. There were volunteers from local businesses, the army, the fire service, cabin crew, a drone pilot, an author-and the medical profession. It was a great opportunity to find out more about what is out there in the world of careers.
A huge thank you to the volunteers, many of them ex-students of FCC, who gave up their time to come in and inspire our students. And a well done to students who gave both events maximum effort and enthusiasm.
