We have recently been visited by the Careers & Engagement team from the Royal Air Force, in order for our students to get a full insight into the careers available in the armed forces.

Sgt Iain “Skelly” Skelton and Sgt Wayne Manville came from the Merseyside branch of the RAF recruitment team to talk to Public Services students about the range of careers available with the RAF, but also talked to the students about their careers and experienced working for the British Air Force. Sgt Manville has previously worked in Communications in the RAF and has previously been deployed to Iraq, while Sgt Skelton is currently the Aviation Fuel Specialist in Logistics. Both are currently working in the recruitment team which is a 3 year role and then they go back to their specialist roles.

The group of Level 2 Public Services students then took part in a question and answer session with the Sergeants to find out about the careers opportunities available in the RAF. The students found out about careers as a pilot and the increasingly popular opportunities in engineering.

Speaking of their personal experiences in their careers, Sgt Manville explained how he had been through College and University and started working in a tax officer, but quickly found himself wanting a challenge and Sgt Skelton explained how he had started his career as a painter and decorator on a new build home site, and again quickly found that he wanted a more exciting and challenging career.

Sgt Skelton and Manville had been taking part in some Personal Development Training with the LMC Public Services students which was designed to help applications to the RAF prepare for the application process. Sgt Skelton said “they play lots of these little games with you, but they will all have a meaning or a hidden agenda to find out what you’re really like. They’re not there to trick you, just to bring out the attributes of the applicants. By the end of the session you see some of the quieter ones come out of their shells, and it’s nice to see a leader emerge.”

Sgt Manville commented “I think these Public Services courses fundamentally give these kids a good start, particularly guys who have done training courses or things like the Duke of Edinburgh or NCS, which will give them a really good head start, particularly in things like interviews. If there’s someone with two A Levels, and there’s someone else with 2 A Levels and a bit of vocational experience, they will be the one who excels. These kind of Public Services courses are ideal and you can spot the kids during the sessions who will do really well”.
