The College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London’s Tottenham Centre Public Services students were visited by the Royal Marines today (6 October) and put through their paces.
The purpose of the visit was to raise awareness of the Royal Marines and to give an insight in to what being a Royal Marine Commando is all about. The morning started with an introduction to physical fitness where Level 1 and Level 3 Public Services students completed a series of rigorous physical drills.
Royal Marine Commando Ron Anderson said, “We’ve come down today to see who stands out and identify who the potential leaders are by putting them through a strong physical circuit.”
Level 3 Public Services student, Jack Dempsey said, “Not only is it helping us get fitter, it’s also a great insight in to the sector. If we were going to join the Royal Navy it gives us a better understanding of what to expect.”
Brendan Berry, Curriculum Manager for Public Services added, “Today is not only about raising awareness of the Royal Marines but also that our students need to be fit and healthy if they wish to work in Public Services.”
The circuits were followed by a presentation. A similar visit will take place at the College’s Enfield Centre on Thursday.
