Course outline

This course is designed to point you in the right direction to achieve quality employment in the Royal Navy, Army, Royal Air Force or Royal Marines. You will improve your teamwork, developing confidence and people skills and also improve your fitness to a standard that will make you eligible for entry to the Armed Forces. You will improve your written and verbal communication skills which will help you meet the strict Armed Forces criteria for entry.

You will be expected to wear a uniform throughout the course and will be expected to maintain it to a high standard. You will also be expected to demonstrate a military attitude in college and in all the work you do, including achieving high standards of attendance and punctuality. You will be expected to take up the opportunity to undertake work experience and/or residential experiences (up to 5 days) across all four services while you are on the course. You will be tutored by ex-military personnel who have a wide range of experience, and who will expect a lot of you.
