Last week, we worked alongside the Baroness Warsi Foundation to facilitate their second Employability Workshop. A new programme seeking to increase employability in young people from low socio-economic backgrounds in the Bradford area.
On Thursday Shazia Aslam and Simon Glazebrook delivered a session about how they developed their career in law, experiences and guidance for conducting a good interview.
On Friday we opened our offices and hosted a session of mock interviews for the students. Rajveer Basra, Ikhlas Ahmed, Sarah Hodkinson and Elizabeth Foster all volunteered their time in order to conduct the interviews of the students. We have had some great feedback from the students who have all said that following these sessions they now feel confident to prepare and attend a legal interview and have a clearer vision for their future.
