Inspirational Women

Published by Cobham Hall on Saturday 18th of March 2023

On Friday, we invited four inspirational women to Cobham Hall to speak to our Year 9 students as part of their Personal Development Framework.

The women we welcomed each work in a leading sector and play a pivotal role within their profession. It is inspiring for our students to see the careers that these women have pursued and the hard work they have put in to get there.

During their time here, the professionals offered our students expert knowledge about the working world and provided advice and tips for interviews.

Earlier in the week, the Year 9 students prepared a cover letter and thought about how they could promote themselves in an interview setting.

Then, on Friday, Aimee, Naomi and Katherine conducted one-to-one mock job interviews with each of the students. They asked them about their school subjects, their future career goals and what they could bring to the industry they were interested in.

Once the interviews were complete, the students were offered the opportunity to ask questions. In groups, they gathered around the inspirational women to find out more about the realities of the working world.

Although many of the students were nervous and found the experience daunting, they all approached the interview professionally and impressed our guests.

Well done to all our students who took part, and a huge thank you to our inspirational women for taking the time to come in and provide this valuable experience and knowledge with our Year 9s.
