A group of Plympton Academy sixth form students spent the day at
Britannia Royal Naval College in Dartmouth recently to find out about
a career in the Royal Navy.

The students were taken on a tour of the facilities and enjoyed
spending time on the bridge simulator, learning about what a ship’s
navigator might encounter. They heard about the recruiting and
training process fromseveral enthusiastic and knowledgeable members of
staff and were impressed by the College’s illustrious history.

“I thought that the experience was very eye opening and allowed me to
gain a better understanding of the Navy and the different roles that
are involved. I really enjoyed my time at the college and it has made
me think about what I want to do in the future,” said
student,Charlotte Hore.

Fellow sixth form student, Nathan Williams, agreed. “The information I
was given was very helpful. The insight I gained into recruitment into
the Armed Forces, especially as a Royal Marines officer, has assisted
me with deciding what I want to do with my career.”

The visit was part of a wider careers programme at the Academy,
designed to engage students with employers across a range of
industries and sectors.
