Year 10 “Big Interview”

At Tomlinscote, we are relentless in ensuring that our students are fully prepared for their next steps, beyond school. As a school, our overall mission is to ensure that we create well-rounded, employable young people with a core set of transferable skills that they can take into the world of work. The Year 10 "Big Interview" is an activity that we run at Tomlinscote in the summer 2 term which gives our students yet another opportunity to prepare themselves for the post-16 choices that they will make in the autumn term of Year 11. 

This activity involves all children in Year 10 taking part in a twenty minute, one to one interview with a business professional throughout a particular day. This year, the Year 10 "Big Interview" is running on Wednesday 17th July 2024. We have over 30 business volunteers lined up to come into school that day to interview the year group. They are from a huge range of industries and are very experienced in interviewing. This interview will provide our young people with an incredibly valuable experience which will enable them to discuss their careers aspirations, their strengths, how they can evidence particular employability skills and what their intended post-16 plans are at this point. The business volunteers will provide feedback to the children which they will receive in due course after the interview.

Please see the downloads below for more information regarding this year's event and the preparation work that students undertake in advance of the day.
