Local Company Helps Redditch School Children Prepare for the World of Work

November 9, 2012

A company from Redditch had been conducting mock interviews at a local school to help children prepare for life after education.

ABC Solutions – an office refurbishment company, spent the day with children from Birchensale Middle School, where the children were able to experience being in an interview scenario.

Simon Beacham, Director at ABC Solutions, arranged for Year 8 students to feel the pressure that everybody has to go through before securing employment after their schooling years.

In order to ensure that the children made the most of this valuable experience, Simon graded the middle school students on body language, appearance, grammar and quality of their application forms.

Anne Willis, Library  and Learning Resources Manager, Birchensale Middle School, said: “the feedback from the Year 8 teachers was very positive. The pupils learned a valuable lesson in what to expect from an interview and how they should look and behave when being interviewed.”

ABC Solutions remain focused on continuing their corporate social responsibility by keeping a prevalent position within the local community.

“It was a fantastic day at the school and it seems like the children learned a lot,” said ABC Solution’s Simon Beacham.

“Interviews are feared by most, so hopefully this practice will give the children a head start when they enter the working world.”

ABC Solutions are an office fit out and refurbishment company who have many years’ experience and a truly professional team of space planners, trade contractors and project managers who work through the process of space rationalisation and office fit out to deliver efficiently planned spaces.
