William Raynor - Level 1 Military Academy

  • School: Darwen Vale High School & Engineering College
  • Studied: Level 1 Military Academy

I chose Blackburn College because the Level 1 Public Services course seemed like a great opportunity to develop the base skills needed for a career in The British Army.

I’ve really enjoyed every aspect of my course and the Public Services tutors at Blackburn College are the best tutors I’ve ever had in education.

As well as building the core skills needed for a successful transition into the services, my time at Blackburn College also built my confidence levels, to the point where I’m now much more comfortable speaking in public and have made some really good friends.

The trips we went on were also really insightful, such as the trip to Blackburn Fire Service. We were able to get a good idea of what life is like in the services and how the Lancaster Fire and Rescue Service go about their daily routines and respond to emergency situations.

I’ve now progressed to the British Army where I’m looking forward to developing a successful career as part of the British Armed Forces.
