On Wednesday 25th of April, Clacton Coastal Academy students and winners of last years National Design Engineer Construct competition, John Haylett and Sam Boone were invited to speak at the Institution of Engineering and Technology at a design quality conference. The brief for John and Sam was to talk about themselves and how they got into the industry at such a young age. They also had to cover how important it is for the younger generation to be involved in the built environment industry to aid the production of excellently designed homes and structures. Both students represented the school admirably, and spoke eloquently, having had previous experience, speaking at the House of Lords and Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors Headquarters. The conference came to an end with the then Secretary of State for Housing and newly appointed Home Secretary Sajid Javid delivering the closing remarks.

This has been an extraordinary day For Clacton Coastal Academy, We are very proud of Sam and John, we believe they have a bright future ahead of them after completing their A Levels this year, and we can’t wait to see the contribution they make to the built environment.
