Army Air Corps Visit
Our Uniformed Public Services students had the pleasure of a presentation by guest speakers from the Army Air Corps, coming in to speak to them about Equal Opportunities and Core Values in the British Army. One of the speakers, Fran Derbyshire, was of particular interest to the group, as she was a former Uniformed Public Services student at St Vincent Sixth Form College.
Having left here 7 years ago to join the Army Air Corps, Fran has completed two tours of Afghanistan and a posting to the USA. She is now working at AAC Brigade HQ and has just been promoted to the rank of Lance Corporal.
John Woodman, who taught Fran, said: ‘This is such a proud moment and to have Fran talk to tomorrows’ uniformed servicemen and women here is a privilege’.
