Interview Preparation

INTERVIEW PREPARATION (90 minutes)

Hendersons can assist your child by conducting a mock interview to help your child familiarise themselves with common questions that collated over the years in a confident manner.

This includes also assisting your child to make up a portfolio about themselves, which will prompt them to answer important questions confidently.  We will go through their portfolio and make suggestions as to how to present their interests and achievements while considering what to add or omit.

APPLICATION PREPARATION (60 minutes)

Hendersons application assistance is available. It is important that the application is written by the student. The support we give is to review a draft of the student’s letter with the student and a parent. We also make suggestions about how to present the evidence to support their claims of involvement to co-curricula activities, clubs and groups.

Written applications are sometimes required by schools:

  • As part of an application for entry to a school.
  • As a requirement for a general excellence scholarship.
  • As the first step in requesting a principal's discretionary place at a Selective High School.

Once you have received an interview date or application due date, you can call our office to book one of these services for preparation.
