The initiative which has been developed between the two organisations will bring students studying and participating in the Public Services Course in touch with members of the Army Cadet Force and the Army Reserves.  Reading College will benefit from the advice, facilities and expertise that the Cadets can offer and the ACF will hope to introduce the College to the benefits and opportunities  the Cadet Force can offer, both youngsters and adults.

Today at Reading College members of the Berkshire Army Cadet Force and the College met to officially dedicate a classroom to the YOUTH OF BERKSHIRE.

Group Executive Director of ‘Activate Learning’ and Head of Reading College Campus, Mr Paul Newman, who was joined by members of his team said, “As head of the Campus I am delighted to open this newly dedicated public services classroom, this new initiative with the Berkshire Army Cadet Force is a fantastic opportunity for our students.”

He added, “We have a shared vision and the partnership will add a huge amount of value, creativity and opportunity, this is really ground breaking stuff.”
