ESB Level 2 Award in Using Oral Skills for Interviews

Define for your listeners the job, course or placement for which you are applying. Present your C.V. to an interview panel, explaining the specific experience and/or skills you would bring to the work (you must provide a hard copy of the C.V. for the examiner’s reference during your presentation). You should cover both personal biography and expectations. Use visual aids or PowerPoint as appropriate.


Make a telephone call to ask for an application form or interview (the assessor will act as the receiver). Explain where you found out about the job / course and when you are available for interview or to start work.


a. The assessor will conduct an interview with you as if you have been short-listed for the job, course or placement you have defined in Section 1, using your prepared C.V.

b. Ask the interviewer one or two questions about the job, course or placement.


You will be expected to answer questions after your presentation and also to contribute actively to the sessions of others, joining in with discussion and asking questions of your own where appropriate.
