What to do next? Ever considered the Armed Services?
The assembly was aimed predominantly at the year 11's however, the information would still be useful to the year 10's.
Pupils were given very brief information regarding what options are available to them post GCSE's, inclusive of apprenticeships, further education (college), re-sits however, the main focus was providing them with an understanding of the Armed Services. Inclusive of; what constitutes the Armed Services, job opportunities (variety of roles), entry requirements (physically and academically), benefits of joining each of the Services (travel, job security, life long skills, discipline, self respect, make new friends). Similarly, some brief personal experiences were shared based upon the time spent in the Royal Navy.
Pupils were advised what to do next if they were interested in joining the Armed Services or generally wanted more information.
Armed Forces Day
Armed Forces Day is a chance to show your support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community: from currently serving troops to Service families, veterans and cadets. There are many ways for people, communities and organisations across the country to show their support and get involved, from attending an event or joining us online to throwing a party or local event.
We invited a special guest into our school Sergeant David Marriott from the Royal Air Force, to speak to the students about what "Armed Forces Day" means to him. Students asked questions about life in the air force, why people join up and what jobs they do.
Students will be attending the "Raising of the flag" on Monday 19th June at Swinton Town Hall.
Armed Forces Day celebrations begin on Monday 19 June when the Armed Forces Day flag is raised on buildings and famous landmarks around the country. To find out more use the link below:
