Inspiring Pupils to look to the Future
We recently attended Clacton Coastal Academy’s Career Fair aimed at year group 7 (aged 11/12) to sixth form students (aged 17/18), seeing approximately 250 students throughout the day. The event was to highlight the diverse range of careers they have available, help the pupils make informed decisions for the future and inspire them by “planting an early seed”.
Many of the students spoken to also took on the practical challenge of taking apart a door handle and reassembling it. This introduced some very basic skills using a screwdriver which very few had ever used!
