St James’ Park ‘Building My Skills’ Programme

On Tuesday 2nd June an atmosphere of nervous energy and anticipation will build up at St James’ Park – but not for a football match on this occasion!

Over 400 students aged between 14 and 18 will arrive at the famous venue to be interviewed by over 50 business people from 25 businesses which are based throughout the North East.

The ‘really-real’ mock interviews are the culmination of this year’s ‘Building My Skills’ programme in the North East which has been delivered across every local authority area in both Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) by Esh Group in conjunction with business partners.

The 400+ students in the North East have each earned their opportunity to be interviewed by completing the Building My Skills programme which has run through the academic year as part of and complementary to their curriculum.
