Oswestry School Head Praises showME

The Oswestry School Logo

Established in 1407, Oswestry School is one of the oldest independent schools in England.

“The showME WorkReady programme has been invaluable to our Upper 6th Form students. They have benefited enormously from the 1-2-1 sessions with Ian Payne on CV development and tailoring, as well as formal interview techniques.

“Our students left these highly structured sessions with a clear understanding of the current recruitment methods used by today’s employers. They also gained a solid appreciation of the non-academic skills, personal attributes and life experiences they need to evidence when applying for a workplace or university interview.

“Participating in the showME professional mentoring programme has given our students a competitive edge as they embark on their futures outside of school in what is a very challenging time for all young people.

“We were proud to be the first school in the area to offer showME to our Upper Sixth Form students. The feedback we had from both staff and students alike has been excellent.”
