Students Triumph in Army Reserves College Cup WebOur level 3 Public and Uniformed Services students were officially crowned this year’s winners and national champions of the Army Reserves, College Cup 2019, after being put through their paces during a series of challenging military activities.

The College Cup is hosted by the British Army’s 37th Signal Regiment at Swynnerton Training Camp, where a number of Colleges from across the UK compete against each other in a series of military-style activities.

The competition is designed to give students an insight into the Army Reserves, as well as exposing them to team building experiences that will supplement their studies.

During the day, the students were scored across eight activities, including battlefield communications, field crafts, practical leadership, physical training, weapon training and dismounted close combat training.

Public and Uniformed Services Lecturer, Grant Williams, commented, “I am extremely proud of the students and their outstanding performance during the competition. They all worked so hard, and despite only having three hours of sleep, they pulled out all of the stops and were certainly worthy winners.”

He further added, “Overall it was a fantastic learning experience for the students as they were able to develop a number of transferable key skills which will support them in their future careers, such as navigation and leadership skills.”
