Supporting Students in Clacton
During Summer 2012, Clacton Coastal Academy, organised a ‘Futures Week’ event for over 100 sixth form students.
‘Futures Week’ was a week-long series of coaching from the Academy, Universities and Colleges Service (UCAS ), Pinnacle PSG and members of the Clacton Round Table. UCAS provided insight to those looking to go to university; those looking to go straight into a career attended a series of workshops supported and presented by Pinnacle PSG - covering subjects such as effective interview technique, writing a CV, completing an application form, managing personal finance and banking and opportunities for modern apprenticeships.
During the week, the students were given the opportunity to put what they learnt into practice and took home a completed, well-polished CV or university application form. The week culminated in a number of the students undertaking mock interviews with members of the Pinnacle PSG team.
