M3 Spanish Workshop: The world of work

Our Spanish students in M3 are currently studying a unit on the world of work. The key concept is communication and they are exploring what type of information they have to provide in the context of job interviews and job applications and how to present this information to suit their purpose.


We would like to repeat this experience and it is for this reason that we are inviting you to take part in a workshop on Friday, 16th November. It will run from 15:00-16:30pm. It will take place in the hall in our Jubilee site.

 

We would like you to tell the students a little bit about your job and what it involves, as well as answering some questions the students will ask on the day (writing a CV, job interviews, skills needed etc..)

 

We would like to invite five parents this year. If you wish to take part, please respond by contacting Mr Sánchez at jsanchez@dwightlondon.org
