National Careers Week got off to a great start at Greenbank College, as we welcomed Barclays employees, Aileen Cameron, John Metcalfe and Billy Walker, who volunteer through the Barclays LifeSkills initiative, to deliver workshops at local schools and colleges.
Lifeskills works with teachers, parents and businesses to inspire young people to get the skills they need for a better future.
The Interview Success session gave students an opportunity to practice answering interview questions and delivering a presentation.
College student Mathew, who took part in the workshop, commented:
“The session was really helpful, it was great to find out about the skills needed for successful interviews, from an employer’s point of view.”
Aileen Cameron, Communications Manager and volunteer for Barclays LifeSkills added:
“Thanks to Greenbank College and the students for their warm welcome. The students were really engaged throughout the sessions and their examples really helped to make the programme relevant to them all individually.”
