Being selected for an interview is an exciting and sometimes daunting prospect. In this course we will be thinking about how to make the most of this moment by building confidence and practising effective communication skills.
If you have felt unprepared for an interview in the past or would like to give yourself a better chance of succeeding at the next interview, join us on the next course for useful tips and a chance to practice within a friendly and supportive environment.
On this course we will work independently and in groups to focus upon:
Putting ourselves in the role of an employer —what are we looking for in a candidate?
How to prepare for interview
Practising asking and answering questions during interview (role play)
What a presentation is; how to prepare and deliver one

Most jobs require you to have Level 2 in English and Maths. These qualifications are important in jobs that are most employable in the South and West Yorkshire Regions such as Education and Health and Social Care sector.
“I am enjoying being back in education - learning, meeting awsome people and getting my confidence back.” - Craig
Great tutors for Maths, and all the staff are helpful and friendly.
Staying residential at Northern College gave me time to breathe. Most of the learning would come about when talking with others, over meals and our free time. Walking in the garden before breakfast is inspirational.
Absolutely beautiful place to learn, stunning scenery to help set you at ease with staff and tutors that go above and beyond. I can't express how much Northern College has helped me.
Absolutely loved my time at Northern College and would recommend to everyone as it's the best thing I did.
