As part of the CIPD Level 3 Foundation Certificate in People Management, the students participated in a simulation of a mock panel interview. In groups, the learners had to fully prepare and conduct a panel interview process, complete with all the correct documentation. The learners would then take part in the panel interview with the help of their fellow classmates who volunteered to be candidates.
The CIPD students took this practice very seriously – even dressing for the part! This process gave them a fascinating insight into the reality of an interview panel and the work involved in hiring the right candidate.
The students enjoyed the evening, with all expressing they had gained great learnings from participating in this activity and it has given them a better understanding of their CIPD Level 3 qualification.
