Overview

You’ve aced the application process, and now you’ve landed an interview. How can you make sure that you stand out from the other applicants? Our Interview Skills short course will tell you everything you need to know, from how to prepare before an interview, to how to follow up afterwards.

Created in conjunction with recruitment experts Pertemps and Hinterview, this interactive online short course will help you land that dream job

You’ll learn the importance of research, body language, and a good first impression, as well as become familiar with some popular interview techniques such as the STAR method. We’ll also dive into the potentially unfamiliar world of video interviewing, and give you the rundown on psychometric testing. This course is delivered via interactive eBooks, videos, and printable PDFs which can be worked through at your own pace.

We’ve turned this course into a FREE Job Ready Pack, containing modules on Dealing with Redundancy and CV Writing, which will help you deal with the difficult transition process if you’ve been affected by job loss, and apply for new roles with confidence.

What you'll learn

Unit 1 - Interview skills

In this interactive eBook, we’ll start with the basics: exactly what you need to do before, during, and after your interview to give yourself the best chance of landing the job. We’ll go into detail about how to hone your communication skills, how to make an excellent first impression, what to wear, and the etiquette on following up with the employer or hiring manager afterwards.

Unit 2 - Zoom interview tips

Are you preparing for a virtual interview? It may sound scary, but don’t worry – this section will tell you everything you need to know to prepare to be interviewed via video, including how to dress, and familiarising yourself with the technology.

Unit 3 - How to do a video interview

Here, two recruitment experts from Hinterview explain the video interviewing process, and give their professional insight into how you can make an excellent impression and seal the deal on landing that dream job.

Unit 4 - Types of psychometric tests

Psychometric testing is incredibly popular amongst employers and hiring managers these days as a way to determine which applicants have the skills to perform well in the advertised vacancy. Here, we’ll run through every type of psychometric testing you could possibly encounter, and exactly what they involve.

Unit 5 - Practise psychometric tests

Following on from the previous section, here, you’ll get to test your skills for real! We’ve created a range of psychometric test questions of every possible type, so you can see what you’re great at, and what you need to improve.

Marine biology, jellyfish conservationist, hairdresser, fitness instructor… I have an eclectic backstory! Art is my passion and one of my proudest moments was achieving my Masters in Fine Art. I then requalified as an Art teacher to share my knowledge with my students. For most of my career, I’ve supported vulnerable students with additional needs such as SEMH and SEN.

Education and Childcare

My 30-year stride in education started with childminding, to working with pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. I then tutored in a national reading programme and went on to become a Higher-Level TA. I’m elated to say I graduated with a First-Class BA Honours Degree when I was 50 – living proof that it’s never too late to chase your dreams!

I love reading and I’m a self-professed Harry Potter fan. Talk to me about all things history, rock music, tattoos and true crime podcasts.

Kelly

Counselling and Psychology

I always knew that a career focused around helping people achieve their goals was perfect for me. That’s why I became a tutor. I love to see my student’s confidence flourish as they progress through their courses. It’s important to help them fit their learning goals around their personal commitments so they have the best chance of success!

A dream come true

I have always wanted to be a teacher but time got away with me and I found that I was 32 before I knew it, had 2 children, and not enough job security or finance to give up my work and go to college, not to mention not having the time. Oxbridge made this possible for me. It has taken 17 months for me to complete my course but I am so pleased with that as it isn’t easy studying, working and being a mum. The course was very thorough and at times I thought my tutor was needing to much from me – but she stood me in good stead for passing the course so I am really grateful for all she did. I am now a few steps closer to achieving my goal. The site is very easy to navigate around which is one of the reasons I chose Oxbridge. I enrolled online and the process was very smooth, I opted to pay in instalments, that was sorted out very quickly and within 24 hours I had my logins to the course I had chosen. The online portal was good, I was worried about this as I am a visual person, but it was interactive, colourful, and not just reems of text on paper or a screen, which is something else I was worried about! I have just received my certificate Hurray! I am sorry about calling I know you got them to me as quickly as possible and I am very thankful to Heather and Katie for keeping me informed and not losing patience with me and for sending the certificate to me so swiftly in such a difficult time. Very efficient, always quick to respond and an absolute pleasure to deal with such lovely people throughout. Thank you for all your help and support, it has been a very positive experience and I would most definitely recommend.

I have just completed the CACHE Certificate in Supporting Teaching and Learning Level 3 and I am so pleased I chose Oxbridge for this journey. They have been competent from the start and have a very slick process in place in terms of communication with students. The tutor assigned to me was Matthew England and he has been fantastic throughout the course. Assignments were critiqued fairly and any feedback was constructive and helpful. Matthew always responded to questions asked or assignments submitted in a timely manner which was welcomed. I would certainly recommend Oxbridge to anyone looking to learn remotely as they provide a great support structure and you don't feel alone in your studies. I hope to use them again in the future as I venture into my new career as a Teaching Assistant.

The best course provider!!

The best course provider!!! I have completed my childcare level 3 in early years course with Oxbridge. I had a terrible experience and was left in a mess with another course provider. When I joined with Oxbridge I was reassured by all the lovely tutors I was in contact with. The course went smoothly and I enjoyed doing my work because I felt I was learning something this time round. Thank you to Lisa and Faye who have been so supportive and the best tutors. I would recommend Oxbridge to everyone and I cannot wait to start another course 😊

I thoroughly recommend the Level 3 Life…

I thoroughly recommend the Level 3 Life Coaching course I undertook! The course is sufficiently stimulating and covers all the foundations of life coaching to feel confident going into it as a new starter or for a career change. My tutor Kelly Pearson was very detailed with her feedback and always on-hand to encourage, support and answer any questions. It's clear that she's very passionate about what she does and brings a wealth of experience - thank you so much again for all your help :)

Thank you so much for helping me!

Thank you so much for helping me start my dream career, your low monthly costs have made this possible for me. I think it is AMAZING that you are helping to fund courses when so many other places have increased their prices, I know this is true because I have been looking at various colleges for a little while now. My whole experience was so positive. The college team were so kind and patient with me as I did have a lot of questions. Enrolment was super easy, and my advisor was just lovely, all of the options were explained and importantly I get a qualification at the end of the course. It was great to speak with such lovely people, really helped and made me laugh in these horrible circumstances! My logins arrived quickly, the system is easy to use, my tutor has already responded to me and I have only been enrolled for a few days. I am super motivated and really looking forward to progressing my studies. I have already passed over my advisors details to a friend of mine who wants to re-do her a-levels. Without doubt I will recommend Oxbridge and your lovely advisors. Thank you again for all of your help and assistance! 😊
