Bethany – Military Preparation

Beth started the programmes in September 2013, joining us from Shaftesbury House Pupil Referral Unit (PRU) in Chorley, Lancashire.   She had confidence issues, low self-esteem and major family related problems to deal with.

We were able to use the interview and review process undertaken by the Engagement Advisers to identify a clear need for the learner support that was available from Training 2000.  Our Learner Support Officer was able to work with the Engagement Adviser to offer guidance and a shoulder to cry on.  An action plan was formulated which involved social services, the school and Training 2000.

During this time Beth maintained 100% attendance in the safe knowledge that she was being cared for at the centre.  She excelled educationally and physically before submitting her Army application during her first course.

She was invited to come back on the programme, which her school funded again, to continue her development.  She has since completed her Army selection, passed and now has a start date for September 2014 to become a Combat Medical Technician in the British Army.  Her fitness, confidence, and self-discipline have developed steadily through a combination of functional skills, military lessons and tough physical training sessions on the Military Preparation Programme.
