Students Bank Life Skills at Riverside College
Riverside College welcomed LifeSkills experts from Barclays Bank for an invaluable session with business students to help with interview techniques, develop employability skills and boost confidence.
Denise Bonnon, Stewart Murray and Claire Gerrard from the Barclays LifeSkills team visited the college for an informative morning working with Level 1 Business students.
During the session the students were able to learn how to impress an employer during an interview and demonstrate these skills through face-to-face mock interviews.
Denise Kerrigher, Business Tutor at Riverside College, said “The sessions were a complete success. Students who otherwise struggle to engage received excellent feedback post-interview from the volunteers and the feedback I received from students showed that they really enjoyed the sessions.
“Personally, I feel that the volunteers went above and beyond what I expected from the sessions. The interviews in particular instilled confidence in the students, presenting them with realistic experience of the interview process – an experience which I feel would benefit not only Level 1 students but Level 3 students who don’t intend to progress to university.”
