Welbeck and Military Careers Pathway Talk
Year 10 and 11 students had the privilege this week of hearing a talk by former student Jake Finesilver about his educational experiences and preparation for a career as a military officer.

Jake left Notley High School at the end of Year 11 in 2015 and embarked on two years at the prestigious Welbeck Defence Sixth Form College in Leicestershire, where he has been elected VHoC (Head Boy) this year. Jake spoke about his path to Welbeck and the next steps of his career, including plans to study at an MOD-approved university before starting his army officer training at RMA Sandhurst in four years' time.

As well as talking about the opportunities that Welbeck has given him, Jake spoke of the hard work and effort he had had to put in to get there, both in his studies and in the necessary focus on physical fitness. Jake's enjoyment and commitment to the career and education route he has chosen were evident to all, and he gave helpful information to students about the different forms a career in the armed forces can take.

We wish him the very best for his future.
