On Friday 20 November, King George V College welcomed Flight Lieutenant Ed Stephens from the Royal Air Force (RAF), who presented the College with a Platinum Award in recognition of the longstanding partnership between the RAF and KGV.
Principal, Adele Wills, was presented with a plaque celebrating the partnership during a small ceremony at the College.
She said: “We are delighted to receive this acknowledgement of our close working relationship with the RAF.
“The award reflects how many of our students choose and are successful in this particular career route. It also means that we are giving the opportunity for all our young people to engage in development workshops with the RAF, such as courses on leadership skills, which can really improve our students’ employability prospects.”
KGV is one of just 50 Schools and Colleges in the country to receive the Platinum Award, crediting the successful relationship between the College and the RAF.
The award also acknowledges the high number of successful applications to the RAF from students who have previously studied at King George V. In the past five years, 48 students from KGV have applied to the RAF with 13 students successfully securing a role within the RAF.
