Uniformed Public Services student Ashley Raju
Eighteen-year-old Ashley Raju enrolled on the Uniformed Public Services Level 3 course to help boost his skills in readiness for a career in the RAF.
He said: “After completing sixth form I started a gap year but wasn’t enjoying it so decided to enrol on the Public Services course to make the most of my time before university.
“The tutors have been really good and treated me like an adult. I have really enjoyed the change from school.
“RAF Careers recommended doing a public services course, and it will definitely help me in the future. My fitness has improved and I feel more certain that I am on the right career path.”
Raju is progressing on to university in September to study Business Management and HR before applying to the RAF.
