Mock Interviews for Senior Pupils- December 6th 2017 (8:45am- 11am)

This would be aimed at pupils hoping to go for interviews for college/ university places as well as those aiming to go straight in to the world of work. The feedback that you would be able to provide pupils with will enable them to build on their interview skills ahead of the real deal!

We have a range of employers already on board and are keen to expand.

What’s in it for you?

As an employer you will be able to gain a first hand insight into the quality of the future work force- you might even find your next employee!

If you think this is something you are keen to get involved with please contact Miss Horn.

Hamilton Grammar’s Careers Convention

On Thursday the 30th November 2017
From 7:00pm to 9:00 pm
At Hamilton Grammar School,
Auchincampbell Road,
Why should you attend?
Following on from the success of last session’s Careers Convention, we have decided to host another!  This is a chance to help inform pupils, and their parents/carers, about their options and choices in the world of study and work. We are looking for you, as educators and employers, to come in to the school and promote the benefits of being involved with your organisation – or the entry requirements and expectations you have. Your input will provide valuable insight into the skills and qualities employers desire in their workforce. We are very keen to work with you and it would be great if you were able to attend.
For more information or to book yourself a stall, please contact Miss Little or Miss Horn.

Business is Booming!

Hamilton Grammar School hosted it’s second Business Breakfast at the end of September. This was an opportunity for employers and training providers to visit the school and network with pupils and staff. Pupils were paired with professionals within their field of interest and were given invaluable insight into what a day on the job really looks like.


Feedback was very positive from employers, many commenting on how motivated and inquisitive pupils had been during the event. Represented at the event were New Age Fitness, Brakes, NHS, Aldi, Routes to Work South, Banks Group and SSE to name a few. Special mention to Hannah McNicol of S6 for capturing the event so well.
