Careers in the heart of the action

On the 2nd March our Year 11 students participated in a webinar with Cpl Peter Sinclair from Armed Forces Careers Office.  Cpl Sinclair introduced Year 11 to a number of exciting careers in the Armed Forces. This included careers within the:

  • Royal Engineers
  • Army Medical Services
  • Royal Signals

Students were given the opportunity to gain an insight into life as a solider and the varied and interesting career opportunities available in the Armed Forces. Cpl Sinclair was encouraged by the enthusiasm of our students and has agreed to return to CRA in the summer to meet with Year 10 and Year 11.
