Music and Performance (MAP) mock interview performances May 9th 2013
The learners from the L2 Music and Performance course (MAP) carried out performances yesterday, but of a different kind.
As part of their progression and Interpersonal Skills qualification, the learners took part in nerve wracking mock interviews conducted by Daniella Leon (Student Welfare and Guidance Officer) and Akua Afram (Work Placement Officer/Apprenticeship Support Tutor).
Although the interviews were mock, the jobs on work placement interviews were very real.
Akua currently has placements at the following companies:
MY ISH – Record Label Assistant
Urban Development – Admin/Development Intern
Vox Africa – Intern for Marketing and Events Management
Lead Tutor Kofi Ankrah also managed to find live vacancies at Footlocker in Oxford Street as well as at Tesco stores in Paddington and Hammersmith in a bid to arm them with the experience in case they actually wanted to apply for the part time roles.
Kofi commented “I was really proud to see the learners step it up, by dressing appropriately and rising to the challenge.”
Learner Zhane Younge told us that “I think it was quite helpful, it helped us prepare for real interviews, and now I fell a bit more confident.”
We’ll let you know if any of the learners where successful in gaining a placement or employment.
The next RUN DV8 event will be held on 21/05/13 featuring performances by Hidden Soldier, Mz Rosay Red and a tutor performance by Afro Kinks.
Come and run with us.
