Students Tested at Army Training Camp
Our Public Services Level 2 and Level 3 students recently completed a five day residential visit to Swynerton Army Training Camp in Stone. The students gained an excellent insight into Army life during their work experience. They also participated in a range of tasks which stretched their abilities to the maximum including field training, command tasks and physical activities. The work experience gave the students an opportunity to hear about the potential career pathways and employability skills required for employment within the Army. The visit also provided the students with an excellent opportunity to engage in a range of activities to enhance their personal and social development.
LMC Public Services tutor Nick Clement said “The students really enjoyed the work experience visit to find out about life in the Army and the practical and tactical thinking aspects really challenged them. The students deserve great credit for the way they applied themselves to all aspects of the programme”.
Corporal Ashley Roper from the Army Outreach Team who coordinated the residential programme stated that “It was a pleasure having the students on the course, they responded really well to the regime and the activities bestowed before them”.
One Public Services student said “It was a great experience that we really enjoyed and some of the practical elements were a real challenge. It is an excellent part of the Public Services course at LMC”.
Public Services at Lancaster & Morecambe College offers many additional learning experiences and employability skills development for their students which run alongside their academic programme of study. Students also have the opportunity to access a range of experiences to enhance their future employment aspirations, including: European visits to Slovakia, Poland, Bulgaria and Hungary; work placement week with public services providers; participation in the National Citizenship Service programme; the Public Service Conference Week; as well as working with school children from the local community.
