A group of sixth form students from Northampton Academy visited a top etiquette academy to learn interview techniques and how to better sell themselves.

The mentoring programme was held at Debretts, in London, an academy which teaches social skills, etiquette and style.

The one day programme provided the students with interview techniques and the skills to be able to sell themselves, which they later tested in their ‘elevator pitch’ – where they had 60 seconds to impress.

The students also received a talk from Tony Langham, chief executive of renowned PR firm Lansons.
