Interview Preparation Session


Of the eight young people who attended our Interview Preparation Session, FOUR were successful in gaining a place on the Get into M&S programme and one other is on the reserve list!

When we had confirmation that Prince’s Trust were working with M&S to do a Get into M&S programme in East Sussex, ESN discussed with the mentors giving our candidates the best possible chance of getting on the programme by running an Interview Preparation Session for our young people. By asking the young people to come to the session in their interview clothes we would be able to establish if any items needed to be bought for them prior to interview. As a qualified trainer Jayne was able to turn this around very quickly and make it as relevant as possible for the young people.
