  • Rotarian Interviews

    Year 12 students take part in Rotarian interviews every year, and this year, this was held at Buckingham University, in the newly built Vinson Centre. In preparation for the interviews, students prepared a CV and an application for a ‘dream job’ that they are considering a career pathway into. The students have been coached on how to produce the most effective CV/letter of application. The whole enrichment experience is key to our young people preparing for one week of work experience in July and for future employment beyond the Sixth Form.
