Frequently Asked Questions

If you can't find the answer to your question below, please don't hesitate to contact us.

  • How long do my students have access to the course?

    One term. This can be extended upon request in special circumstances.

  • Do my students receive individual access or teach in class only?

    Both options are available, it's up to you. Once your order and payment are processed, you will automatically receive access to the Teachers Edition of the course. We can also supply you with a unique school URL for students to login individually, so students can work through material in class together, as well as in their own time. There is nothing for you to prepare ahead of the course.

  • My school is not ready to enrol a class or cohort, but an individual student wishes to start the course.

    No problem. Parents and students can purchase individual access to the course. Please refer students to our Entry Level Interview Skills Course on our website for individuals: interviewchix.com. Individual access is $297 rather than $8 per student as the individual course includes 3 x live Google Meet sessions with our coaches as well as a members group in which we answer live questions, supporting the students working through the course as you will do at school. For more information please refer students and parents to interviewchix.com

  • What's the minimum number of students to enroll for a school?

    30 students as that ensures we can offer you the price of $8 per student.

  • What Year Groups is the course designed for?

    Year 9 and up.

  • How does the video course work with your live workshops?

    The Interview Skills Video Course is designed as a stand-alone course and gives students all the core skills & techniques to prepare for an interview. The live Workshops (either face or face or online) are a deeper dive and can be tailored to specific needs. For example, some schools prefer to do a tailored workshop for Year 9 focused on gaining transferable skills relevant to future opportunities, how to think like an entrepreneur or building confidence for future interviews.

  • Do students keep the workbooks after the course is finished?

    Yes. The students download the workbooks and keep these for future reference. Access to all videos expires, but a lot of reminders/important notes are in the workbooks to jog memories in future.

  • What about GST and can I combine products for a better price?

    We offer a ‘value pack’ that includes the Interview Skills Video Course + Resume & Cover Letter Template Pack @ $11.95 per student. FYI Students can also purchase the Resume and Cover Letter Template Pack individually on interviewchix.com. All school product & course prices quoted on the website are excluding GST.
