Flying Start To The New Term

February 25, 2015 3:31 pm

Lincoln UTC Students started the first day of the new term spending a day with the Royal Air Force at Cranwell. The base site of Cranwell has a long and fermented history within our Lincolnshire County, going back to its first formation on 1st April 1916. Positioned as a training establishment for new recruits and forming a strong base for the RAF, it still exists and runs for this purpose nearly 100 years later. We were very excited to be immersed in a rich historical engineering setting as our students moved through a variety of activities during the day. We were given contact time with many of the engineers training and working in the RAF, with a chance to asks questions on their career paths, stemming from why they chose the service route for engineering, through to what general life offers in the military. Activities centred on team communication and problem solving. A great start to the new term!
