Each year the programme becomes more robust and delivers an increasing amount of activities for students. This year, many students were presented with the opportunity to practice their interview skills with the Ministry of Defence.
Students looked extremely smart in their Travel and Tourism uniforms and many of the MOD staff commented that they were the smartest students they had ever seen on the programme. The students will also visit the MOD headquarters at Whitehall in January to meet their mentors.
The MOD programme is also supporting Foundation for Access students by delivering the MOD Crisis Workshop at the College. This workshop enables students to role play the Prime Minister among other Ministers and deliver a press conference.
Programme Leader, Andy Gillman MBE continues to looks forward to working with the College. He said: “The MOD volunteers and I are always impressed with the warm welcome from the students at the College. This is why, out of all the Colleges we support in the programme, Croydon College is the recipient of the largest number of activities and the consequent number of students able to participate.”
