MORE than 50 Neale-Wade Academy and Cromwell Community College Year 10 students learnt about how to give themselves the best chance of finding a job at an employability day at The Boathouse in Wisbech.
They were taught how to put together a strong CV and how to perform well at interview at The Employability Skills Day, organised by Fenland Youth District Council and the Fenland Enterprise in Education project.
Neale-Wade Academy teacher Janice Holditch said: “Everything was really well tailored to what these students need and watching the interview, for example, was great - something they never normally get a chance to see.
“It all fitted in very neatly with some of the things we’re doing in the classroom.”
Councillor Chris Seaton, Fenland District Council’s deputy leader, said events like these were crucial to improve young people’s job prospects.
He said: “Getting schools and businesses together and helping young people improve their chances of finding a job is an important part of our work as a council.
“These kind of events do a lot to promote that, so congratulations to the Fenland Youth District Council for making this one of their priorities.
