Students get taste of work

Evesham Editorial 19th Feb, 2022   0

STUDENTS from Heart of Worcestershire College were given an insight into the industry following visits from Worcester Warriors, the Royal Marines and the Royal Navy.

Taking place at Perdiswell Leisure Centre, the college’s level two and level three Public Services students participated in a range of practical activities including blind rugby, cooking demonstrations and future careers in the public services.

Warriors staff raised awareness for visually impaired and blind people by setting up a practical rugby session.

Students were able to experience the challenges faced by visually impaired and blind people. They were also taught techniques and coping mechanisms practiced by visually impaired and blind individuals.

In addition, the students also benefitted from a visit from the Royal Marines and the Royal Navy who gave a motivational speech to the students, talking about succeeding in their future careers.

This was followed by a cooking demonstration and a session where the students were encouraged to talk about their future careers and were also able to eat the nutritious food which had been cooked.

Student Beth Radford said: “I was really inspired and glad we were able to have this opportunity.

“Even though I do not plan on a career in the military, the Marines talk was really motivational and encouraged me to reach my potential in a career of my choice.”
