Alleviating poverty, bringing hope

Helping Luton’s Young People Build a Better Future

The NOAH Academy in Luton held it’s biggest ever mock-interviews session for young people last month.

To complete their ‘Routes to Employment’ course, our young learners had the opportunity to practice typical interview questions in a non-pressurised environment with local volunteer professionals and employers.

We especially loved hearing the passion from our learners about their ambitions for their future employment, as well as the volunteers tailored guidance and advice for each learner.

We couldn’t have asked for a more caring and inspiring group of volunteers.

At the end of the interviews, each learner had the opportunity to share their learnings with the group. It was fantastic to see how their self-belief had grown throughout the day.

This was our largest session yet and it would not have been possible if it wasn’t for kindness of our volunteer professionals.

Huge thanks to: Tannith (Savills), Steven (Urban & Rural MK), Matt (Money & Pensions Service), Sirah & James (Enterprise), Broadcaster Amy Nickell, Luke (Swift Swimmers), Neya (Luton Sixth Form College), Oladele (Careers You Love), Peter (Careers in Export), Nasrin and Ibrar (Nationwide Building Society), Jo, and Ian (Digital Execs).
