The Truro College public service team were brought to attention for an Armed Services mock recruitment day on April 18 to test and prepare students for a career after college in the forces.

All level two public service students were in attendance and gained valuable first-hand experience of the selection process for a potential career in the Armed Services. The experiences included a gruelling aptitude/psychometric test delivered by serving members of the Royal Marines, followed by individual mock interviews by the Royal Navy, Royal Marines, British Army and the Royal Air Force.

Public services year one coordinator, Matt Kennedy-Smith, said: “Today was a fantastic opportunity for our students that continued the college’s drive in developing student’s employability skills. It directly contributed to the study programme our students are completing and we are very grateful to the military personnel from the local Armed Forces careers office in Redruth in coming in and delivering such a fantastic and professional experience.”

For more information about the public services course, come along Truro College’s next open evening, on May 4 from 5pm.
