Doing the mock interviews, without a doubt. You see the whole programme coming together and get to see how confident the students have become and what they have learned over the previous sessions.
It’s my second year being involved.
Preparing the sessions with the team is a lot of fun. The whole team gets involved and it’s a great team effort that makes the programme so good. I also enjoy having the students come and visit, that’s always a fun day too!
Making sure that we are prepared enough for the sessions and carving that time out beforehand while running a busy business but I have a good support network in the store, to make sure everything gets done.
That they are the best ever to work with! And that they will get as much out of it as the students will, whether it’s building confidence or feeling that you are being of benefit outside of the normal support structures for the students. Of course, I’d tell all the students to stay in school!
That it continues. It would be great to see this programme in more schools, as I would certainly have benefited from it when I was that age.
My parents…both of them…I can’t pick just one! I’ve learned a lot from them. Since I’m older now and realising what they had to sacrifice and put up with, to make sure their kids got the best start in life and living away from home as I do, you appreciate them even more.
