Blue Tangerine Interview Workshops 

As you may know, National Careers Week is taking place between 7th – 12th March this year.

Across their federation of schools Blue Tangerine are looking for businesses to volunteer their time to visit our schools and talk about their job roles/business. In particular we are approaching businesses who value diversity and celebrate differences.

At The Blue Tangerine Federation, they are focused on improving possibilities for their pupils by being better, together. They value every child’s abilities and support them to acquire the knowledge and skills to transition to successful adulthood in our mainstream world.

Two of the schools within the federation are Special Educational Needs Schools for children with Learning Disabilities and Complex Needs including Autistic Spectrum Disorder, Speech and Language Communication Needs and Moderate Learning Disabilities. Unfortunately these young people are not offered the same opportunities as their mainstream peers and work experience is non-existent.

As part of National Careers Week they are hosting Interview Workshops for our students, where they will be offered the chance to be the interviewer and interviewee. For many, the interview process can be daunting and stressful, this is amplified for our students who already have issues communicating. By giving them experience in a familiar place, they hope to build on their self-confidence and to show them how big the world is outside of our schools.

They would really appreciate any help you may be able to offer, as they would like the students to hear the experiences of a range of professions.

 

The dates and locations for the interview workshops are as follows:

Wednesday 9th March at St Luke’s School in Redbourn, Hertfordshire and Thursday 10th March at The Collett School in Hemel Hempstead.

This is a whole day event as they have many students interested in taking place, but can be flexible on timings to suit your business. Lunch will be provided.

If you think this is something you are able to support with, please let us know and we will connect you with the team.
