Mission Statement

"I never worry about action, but only inaction." -Winston Churchill

The course will give you hands-on learning experience and firsthand knowledge of the uniformed services. The course team, with its professional experience of working in the uniformed services, offers excellent, practical work related tuition, complemented by interesting visits and presentations from visiting speakers.

Students are encouraged to take control of their own learning, through a supportive, encouraging, adult environment. Every student is given the opportunity to reach the required standard of physical fitness to increase their chances in the highly competitive entry system for the services. Above all, students find out from the services themselves about the attitudes and aptitudes that they need.
