You’re hired… You’re fired!
Go Ahead Training have been supporting an event today organised by Durham Education Business Partnership at Parkside Academy. This event is called You’re Hired… You’re Fired! and is being delivered and facilitated by Education Partnership staff who offer this activity across County Durham.
It is an event which has been designed to give young people an idea of what it is like to participate in an assessment centre when applying for jobs.
The students are given a number of tasks and are asked to work in small groups to demonstrate a range of employability skills. At the end of the activity the most successful group will be ‘hired’. The programme was developed by the Education Business Partnership some years ago and draws some of the elements from The Apprentice programme on TV. A number of employers support these events to offer their advice and guidance to help the students become better prepared for the world of work.
