The visit was also to address any misconceptions of military life.
RAF Cosford is not only home to No.1 School of Technical Training as part of the Defence School of Aeronautical Engineering but also to the Aerosystems Engineering and Management Training School and No.1 Radio School, with all three coming under the Defence College of Technical Training.
The RAF School of Physical Training and the Defence School of Photography are also based at Cosford and RAF Apprenticeships, as delivered at RAF Cosford, were recently recognised as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted.
Although it was a very long day for all concerned, the visit went exceptionally well. The students and their parents were impressed, particularly with the high-flying opportunities available in the RAF. Many thanks to the Royal Air Force in particular, Squadron Leaders, Brian Ramsey and Andy Thayne for making the event happen.
