Hannah Smith is set to become a member of the RAF, after completing her Public Services qualifications at Kidderminster College.
Hannah left college with the highest grades possible, to enable her to continue with her career in the public services. Hannah said: “Two years ago I was told by my school sixth form that leaving them would be the biggest mistake I could make, however after two years at Kidderminster College, I’m actually proud to say I’ve left with the highest grade possible and the best memories.”
“They’ve offered me so many opportunities that school could never have. I’ve had the most amazing tutors who have supported me though every step and helped me learn so much more about the public services, taking us on endless amounts of trips! I’m gutted to be leaving, I’ve made so many good friends over these past two years I hope everyone gets to where they want to be in the future!”
Amongst many other trips, Public Services students visit RAF Brize Norton as part of their course, where they take a tour of the station and receive information about careers and opportunities in the RAF, particularly apprenticeships and officer entry. RAF personnel give the students careers advice in policing roles, dog handling, physical training, logistics, air traffic control, catering and ground crew roles, which inspired Hannah to pursue a career in the RAF.
