Year 11 Mock Interviews

On Thursday 23rd and Thursday 30th January, every Year 11 pupil had the opportunity to take part in a mock interview with a local employer. This was a chance for pupils to practise their interview skills and gain feedback in preparation for their real Sixth Form, College and Apprenticeship interviews. Our visitors were very impressed by how polite and prepared our pupils were. The impact of this practice has been evident in the Sixth Form interviews of some pupils, where they have thought carefully about how best to sell their achievements and skills. 


Biggest Ever Careers Fair

Barr Beacon School’s Annual Careers Fair was bigger than ever before, with over 80 visitors giving up their time to meet our pupils. During the fair, pupils were able to engage with a range of employers, universities, apprenticeship providers, colleges and training providers.

Visitors came from all over the country, with universities as far-reaching as Belfast, and the careers represented at the Fair spanned a variety of fields such as healthcare, engineering, construction, the forces, hairdressing, the police, technology, defence, funeral care and the civil service. Many visitors were from key employers that reflect the changing needs of the local labour market.
