Good Luck to those of you who collecting GCSE Results and Level 1/2 Results today. Hope you achieved what you wished for and needed.

Just Remember...

Your results do not dictate your future. They might have an impact on your immediate future – they might affect what uni you go to or what course you get on to, but they don’t dictate your entire future. If these results have knocked your plans slightly, it doesn’t mean that you can never get onto the course you always wanted to do. It doesn’t mean that you can’t get the career you’ve been dreaming of. Not everybody goes straight from school into their dream course, and then got a job in their dream career (in fact very few people do!) and sometimes, the best things in life can come from an unexpected change in direction.

AIR CADETS EXPERIENCE MILITARY POLICE TRAINING.

Royal Air Force Air Cadets from the Warwickshire & Birmingham Wing have just returned from what has been described as a "Blue Light" camp at the Defence School of Policing and Guarding at Southwick Park.

Thirty-One Air cadets and staff took part in a unique and extremely interesting camp at the Tri-Service Police Training. The camps programme was varied and covered many aspects of the RAF Police Training delivered by the Southwick Park Defence School of Policing and Guarding (DSPG).

The training undertaken by the cadets included Powers of Arrest, Personal Safety Training sessions, Airport Security check-in training facility complete with x-ray machines etc. The Airport Security check-in proved to be a highly amusing activity with each cadet having a go at the different aspects of the check-in process and using computer simulators to see what the X-ray machines can really do with a testing exercise.

The cadets spent a whole morning undergoing CSI (Crime Scene Investigation) training that covered many aspects of this specialist role, from collecting samples, fingerprinting and DNA to photography - a visit they all found exceptionally interesting. They also had an insight into the physical demands of Police training when they undertook the RAF fitness test, many of them passed the required standards with some obtaining exceptionally high scores.

The camp programme also included a visit to the Royal Military Police (RMP) Close Protection Training Unit at Longmoor. The week long camp certainly opened all our eyes to the wide variety of work undertaken by the RAF Police and RMP together with the extra opportunities to specialise after completing phase two training.

Just like the RAF Police trainees, the cadets had to practice their drill for the muster parade, and underwent initiative and teamwork tests on the low ropes training area.

The evenings were also enjoyable with Laser Quest, Pier visit, and the last night party with Pizza and donuts, but anyone there will testify that it was an interesting and tiring week with so much going on.

The Southwick Park camp was significantly different to a normal camp on a RAF station and we were indeed fortunate to have the stations Deputy Air Cadet Liaison Officer, Cpl Leon Wilton RAFP assigned to us for the entire week - and he was an excellent role model for the cadets throughout the camp.

This camp at DSPG Southwick Park was a truly hands-on insight into all aspects of military police training, a thoroughly enjoyable and enlightening experience for everyone.

The Air Cadet Camp Commandant Sqn Ldr Bryan Coats said. "This was a valuable opportunity for the RAF Police to dispel any preconceived ideas anyone had about the branch - and they certainly did that. It was a full week programme - with no gaps, and I have no doubt cadets will have learnt a great deal, and really enjoyed many parts of the activities. I thank the ACLO and the establishment for hosting us - and will not forget them. This was the 6th ATC camp at the centre, and hopefully as a result of the total success of the week, there may be others."
