Public Services students experience a snapshot of life in the Navy

Students from Bridgwater & Taunton College’s Uniformed Public Services courses have spent two days at Pier Cellars in Cornwall taking part in an inter-college competition, run by the Royal Navy.

The object of the competition was to introduce the students to tasks and equipment used in the Royal Navy, while competing against eight other teams. The activities included leadership and teamwork tasks which were all scored. On the second day they completed a 10km timed walk, followed by lunch and a presentation.

As a result of the two days away students have worked hard to achieve 24 hours of work experience and enrichment activities and have produced evidence for specific units on their course.

First year student Milly Vernon said, 

“It was hard work but a really great experience.”

Hollie Williams added,

“As I want to join the Royal Navy, this was a great insight and has boosted my desire to join.”
