The job interview experience should hopefully be less daunting for South Craven School pupils thanks to an exercise to help them hone their presentation skills.

A team led by Karen Higson, advice and guidance officer at the Cross Hills school, staged the session to give students an idea of what to expect and to develop their confidence for that crucial first encounter with a potential employer. Among those who came into school to interview pupils were employers, Craven College and a Keighley councillor.

A school spokesman said: “Many students do lack the experience and skills needed to impress future employers, and the morning of mock interviews was designed to help them and give them confidence for when it becomes a reality.”
