Last week our Schools Liaison Officer, Sarah, attended The Big Interview Day along with a selection of teaching staff from Bath College.
Over 200 students currently in year 10 at Writhlington School took part in the Big Interview Day.
After having interviews with industry experts students came into the give it a go area. There were a range of activities on offer from the College:
Sport – A “keepy up” challenge with a leader board of who had done the highest number
Painting and decorating – Learning the technique of wood effect using paint
Animal Care – handling Cornelius the snake and Darcy the bearded dragon and learning how to care for them
Stonemasonry – using equipment to carve their initials into stone
Public Services – A race against time to see which team of three could build the tallest tower. Two of the students were blindfolded and the third student wasn’t allowed to touch anything and could only instruct the other two how to put it together
Health and Social Care – Students had the opportunity to use various items of healthcare equipment on each other to learn how they operate
Complementary Therapies – learning about the course whilst receiving a hand massage using various different types of oils
Three Bath College students who were previous Writhlington School students attended.
The activities were then followed by an assembly talking about what you can study at College and what College life is like.
Emma Pascoe, Head of Careers at Writhlington School said: “Thank you so much to everyone from Bath College, our students loved meeting you all and had a great time.”
