Round up the Troops // Jade Baynes
Name: Jade Baynes
Where you’re from: Hull
When you signed up to Forces Prep: 04.08.15
What role you’d like in the armed forces: Weapons Technician - Navy
Signing up to Forces Prep has helped me to prepare myself for the Navy. It’s given me the knowledge I need for my job role, and even myself! I’ve been able to push myself beyond limits with the activities we do each day, from drills, to team tasks, to physical activities. I’ve even enjoyed learning about the armed forces, it’s not your typical sitting behind a desk all day like college, it’s actually fun!
From August to now, I’ve gained my NCFE Level 1 Diploma in Uniformed Services, completed my First Aid training, and I’m pretty confident with my map reading and drill. Even though the whole course is fun, the one thing I enjoy the most is being around people who want to do the same as me, they encourage me when it’s getting tough. Really motivating me to push further and achieve my goal of being a Navy, Weapons Technician.
Forces Prep in three words? Challenging, fun and adventurous!
