Joe studied with us back in 2016 after coming from Burnside School. When leaving school, he wasn’t really sure what to do but decided to look at the courses we offer as his siblings studied with us and went on to have great careers. Eventually, after taking advice from family members in the armed forces, he enrolled on our Uniformed Services courses. The course allowed Joe to develop the skills needed to work in the sector as well as knowledge of all the services. Here’s what he says about his time studying with us…
“I gained qualifications but the best part about the course was the people I ended up meeting as well as the visits/opportunities the course had to offer such as training with the Royal Marines and visiting the Royal Fusiliers.”
During his studies, Joe’s tutor supported and guided him towards a career in the RAF as it best suited his skills so he applied to join at the end of the academic year. After finishing college, he then travelled to RAF Halton for 10 weeks basic training.
Fast forward to today, Joe has now served 4 years in the RAF and travelled the world to places including Germany, Falkland Islands and Cyprus on deployment. Joe describes his decision to study Uniformed Services as the ‘best decision I’ve ever made’.
