PPM Ltd teamed up with Inspira and other local employers to give some of the Year 12 pupils at Workington Academy a Mock Interview Experience.
PPM Ltd's Managing Director, Gordon McGregor and Beth Nicholls and Laura Brough, Communication and Development Officer's at PPM Ltd, volunteered to assist Inspira and Workington Academy in offering Mock Interviews to some of the Year 12 students on Thursday 21st July.
Inspira and Workington Academy arranged for students to attended a 1:1 interview with local companies from Workington and the surrounding area.
The aim of the session was to give students a practice interview with an employer representative, with the outcome being the improvement of student skills and confidence in an interview setting and to give them an understanding of the preparation needed to move into the working world.
Gordon McGregor said "The students showed confidence and maturity and handled, what was for most, a first interview situation very well. It was great to be part of a scheme that encourages and mentors the young people of Cumbria into work".
