Trelleborg Supports Local School on Employment Skills Initiative
The event, which took place on Tuesday 28th June at the West Lancashire College, aims to provide year 10 students (14-15 years old) with essential skills relating to job applications and interviews.
Alongside Trelleborg were a number of other high profile local employers, which provided the students with a wide variety of interview styles.
Paul Smith, Assistant Headteacher at the school explains, "Pupils took part in a 15 minute 'mock interview' which gave them a fantastic opportunity to practice some important life skills. Although they were a bit nervous, they learnt a lot and this will really help them when they have to apply for college courses, apprenticeships and jobs in the future. We are really grateful to local employers for helping us with this event."
Representatives from Trelleborg were Andrew Garside, Innovation & Engineering Director, and Andy Wood, HR Director at Trelleborg Offshore, who commented, “Both Andy Garside and myself thoroughly enjoyed interacting with the young people at the Mock Interview day at West Lancashire College.
Our participation was part of a wider commitment to influencing the development of skills and employability in West Lancashire as well as promoting the Trelleborg Offshore name to the engineers and chemists of tomorrow!”
The event was a full success, with students left having gained some invaluable experiences.
