“It gives me great pleasure to inform you of a unique Army Careers evening to be hosted by recruiters from the Army Careers Centre Gloucester. The presentation evenings are specifically aimed at informing parents, gatekeepers, influencers and Careers Advisors of the fabulous benefits and career opportunities available to young people considering a career in the British Army as a young Officer or Soldier post year 11.
With over 70 years of military experience between them, the recruiters in Bristol are in a strong position to give the best advice on entry criteria and job choices available. Soldiers cannot serve in the field Army until they are 18 years old. However, the Army provides excellent training for 16 – 18 year olds in order to gain qualifications, get fit, develop outstanding values and confidence and build skills for the future.
The presentation will take place at The High School for Girls (Denmark Road, Gloucester, GL1 3JN) on the 25th November starting at 6.45 pm.
The two fundamental areas covered in the presentations will be:
Welbeck Defence Sixth Form College is located in Loughborough, Leicestershire. It is a unique full-board educational establishment that mixes superb teaching, first rate facilities and military training. Its purpose is to prepare ambitious young people for an engineering or technical career as an officer in the Army.
At Welbeck students study technical A-Levels as part of the first steps in the Defence Technical Officer and Engineering Entry Scheme which leads to university and then into a professional career in the Army with financial support every step of the way
The Army Foundation College is located in Harrogate (North Yorkshire) and trains future soldiers for the many jobs available to school leavers aged between 16 and 17 years and five months. The Army Foundation College offers young men and women the opportunity to earn as they learn through military training and vocational education. All soldiers benefit from excellent welfare support, healthcare, education, sport and adventure training and team building facilities to improve confidence and self esteem.”
