Over the past couple of months, a selection of Business Administration & Secretarial full time students and apprentices have taken part in an employer engagement opportunity with Denplan.
Denplan is a dental payment plan specialist providing services to customers across the UK. They have over 6,500 member dentists and around 1.7 million patients across the country.
Denplan held an interview skills course for their own employees, and our students were also able to attend to help them practice for mock interviews. The event is held annually, and this is the fifth time our students have taken part.
The students were interviewed three times and given feedback, as well as being able to give feedback to the interviewers.
The students took the occasion seriously as they dressed for the interview and prepared to answer questions on the role of a Customer Service Advisor - they researched Denplan beforehand, prepared some responses to scenarios and prepared questions for the end of the interview.
All of the students issued with 'You're hired' certificates after the event.
