The Yorkshire Regiment motivates college students

Public Services students had the opportunity to learn about life in the British Army from The Yorkshire Regiment.

Students were given an insight into the daily life of a British Army Soldier as well as receiving expert career advice and guidance on job opportunities, interviews and requirements within the Army. This was a great opportunity for students to find out about the range of careers in the Army and public services.

Jack Cresswell, a Level 3 Extended Diploma Public Services student, said: “I really enjoyed the session, it has given me a good insight into the Army and the careers it can provide. I want to join the Royal Air Force and the Public Services course has given me the opportunities to pursue this further.”

Nicholas Lawton, Public Services Curriculum Leader at Barnsley College, added: “Many of our Public Services students are interested in joining the Armed Forces so this provided an opportunity for them to gain expert career advice and guidance from The Yorkshire Regiment.”
