BTEC Public Services students have had a busy and interesting term. Having been put through their paces by the Army, they have now been treated to a visit from the Royal Navy Presentation Team. Attending College on 22 November, the team provided a dynamic, multi-media presentation aimed at informing and increasing knowledge of the work of the Royal Navy. They explained what the Royal Navy does and why and provided a briefing on their equipment, people, current and future capability.
The practical sessions were challenging, including logistical problems requiring good communication skills and teamwork. The students rose to the challenge and showed that their teamwork is improving considerably from the beginning of the year.
The students asked questions about necessary qualifications, sea-sickness, and how to get into the Special Boat Service.
Lucie Roberts, L6 BTEC Public Services student enjoyed the visit. She said, “I thought it was inspirational as it made me think twice about what I want to do after College. The team exercises were challenging but fun.”
Fellow Public Services student, Joseph Sharkie added, “I thought the day was really interesting, learning about the different jobs and opportunities in the Navy – there are over 56 different trades! “
