The College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London welcomed Royal Navy and Royal Marinesâ€™ representatives earlier this week (Monday 21 November) who came to talk to students about thier career options.
The students, who are studying courses that can lead to careers in the armed forces, took a keen interest in finding out more about what is required to enter both the Royal Navy and Royal Marine Commandos. Their questions ranged from pirates in Asia to the Falkland Islands.
Public Service student, Helin Atiz who is currently a police cadet and aiming for a career in the police service, said: “The workshop was a great insight into life in the forces and understanding of the career options available to me when I complete my College course.”
Kurt Hintz, Curriculum Director said: “This is just one of the many things our staff have planned for our students. Next term students will be visiting army bases, police training institutes and the houses of parliament to develop their interest in public services, criminology and law.”
Scott Kerr, an Engineer Technician in the Royal Navy, added: “These workshops educate young people and allow them to make informed decisions about a career in the forces. The students were very receptive and it was a pleasure to meet them all.”
