The Cheadle Academy

RAF Talk & Demonstration

March 2017

Did you know that...

an apprenticeship in the RAF offers you the chance to gain a UK-recognised trade qualification as part of a challenging and unique career? Cheadle Academy Students do!   This week, as part of National Science Week, students enjoyed a lecture and demonstration from the RAF – it was, ‘exciting and very interesting’ according to Year 8 and 9 students, ‘it has so many opportunities for you to think about, particularly if you are self-motivated’.

Students learnt about all kinds of apprenticeships in a broad and diverse range of careers including aviation operations, engineering, hospitality & catering and IT. Benefits appear huge, according to the presenters of the RAF Roadshow, ‘you’ll receive the very best training and as well as getting paid to learn, you’ll get the chance to travel the world, play sport and perform an important role in the RAF.’

Students took part in a variety of demonstrations, as can be seen from our photographs!  From spiralling balloons, drones and virtual headsets to scaled down jet engines, it was a really informative presentation. 

Other demonstrations have also been taking part in the Science Faculty this week – further facts and photos to follow!
