AIR & DEFENCE COLLEGE STUDENTS FROM PETERBOROUGH COLLEGE VISITED RAF CRANWELL FOR A GREAT INTRODUCTION TO MILITARY LIFE
The students were put through their paces by RAF Cranwell’s RAFOTA Instructors, who set a schedule for the day designed around challenging communication skills and teamwork abilities.
During the initial classroom-based sessions, students were blindfolded and tasked to work together to solve a selection of problems and challenges.
Outside on the Low Ropes, students were tasked to communicate effectively to ensure the whole team made it across the assault course as a unit. Once they had all found themselves safely across, the students were put through the wringer by Sergeant Nauyokas of the Station Discip Team. Nuayokos led an ‘enjoyable’ yet realistic drill session, during which the students showed the respect and can-do attitude required to complete the drills successfully.
The day was rounded off with a fitness session conducted by the Station PTIs, consisting of a 1.5 mile run, showcasing the high level of fitness needed to keep up with military life.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank RAF Cranwell, for this fantastic opportunity and for allowing our students to get a taste of what their future within the armed forces may hold. To find out more information about how you can enrol in the Air & Defence College, click here.
