Hoping to inspire the next generation of Public Service men and women, the Public Services teaching team from Truro College took part in a Forces and Protective Services event at Redruth School with Year 10 pupils.

The event was organised by Redruth School as a part of their work experience week. Three members of the Public Services team plus two Fire Services Apprentices and five Tri Services Apprentices carried out activities including: escape room, Casevac, Fire Service physical testing, and Fitnopoly. 

Throughout the day, 24 pupils competed in groups of eight to see who had the best teamwork, leadership and communication skills to win the overall challenge.

Louise Coley, Deputy Team Leader for Sport and Public Services, commented that “This was an excellent opportunity for the pupils to see the type of work the Protective Services undertake daily. They had the opportunity while competing to ask both the Fire and Tri Services Apprentices questions linked to their employment, thus gaining a first-hand an insight into these careers.”

Phoebe Coleman from Redruth School found the day to be a fantastic success, saying: "Our students had a great day and gave some great feedback.”
