Last Tuesday Northern Adelaide Senior College students were treated to a guest speaker from the Army Reserves about what it is like to join the army.
“My family had been telling me to look into the army and as soon as I saw it on Daymap, I thought I’d attend,” says Jayden C-F, who hopes to enter the Army Reserves as an electrician.
“There was a lot of different information about the army than the stigma that is often talked about.
“The army is a very good way to discipline yourself and get better in your own personal self-worth. It seems like a supportive environment.
“They do take people case-by-case, but it’s not just one flat rule for everyone. Everyone gets their own chance.”
Jayden has begun his admission into the Army Reserves following the guest speaker’s visit.
“The process is actually very smooth. There was a few questions you have to fill out online and you’re given a candidate ID,” says Jayden.
“Then you place all of your documents online and they’ll give you a call and talk to you. You also do an aptitude test and medical to get a good look at your background.”
Jayden, who studied a Certificate II in Electro-Technology, chose to return to senior secondary education at NASC because he felt that it was the right place for him to achieve SACE at a pace suitable for him.
“I find NASC to be really good. Most teachers are really good with handling people with learning difficulties,” says Jayden.
“I really enjoy it here.”
