STUDENTS completing a 14-week Army Preparation Course at Kingston Maurward College displayed their drill skills with military precision.

The 23 students were put through a series of military exercises in front of friends and families, and were then interviewed individually by Colour Sergeant Turner of The Rifles.

Throughout the full-time course students train for the military interview process through fitness and exercise, teambuilding and confidence training, and are then graded on their performance.

In addition to the formal classroom and regimented fitness programmes they participate in kayaking, canoeing, climbing and outdoor pursuits. Kingston Maurward College works closely with the Army Development Selection Centre (ADSC) to ensure students set on a military career are given the correct training in preparation for their future roles.

Course tutor Emma Walsh said “The course helps prepare these dedicated young people to embark on a career in the forces, giving them a solid grounding in fitness and self discipline while giving them an insight into life in the military. I am incredibly proud of my students’ progress.

“We wish them every success for the future.”
