Students soldier on with Crewe TA
9:15am Tuesday 24th September 2013 in News
EAGLE-eyed public services students from South Cheshire College stepped up their search techniques during a visit to the Territorial Army.
The second year Level 3 extended diploma public services group spent a morning at the TA base in Crewe taking part in hands-on people and vehicle searches.
Students were able to fulfil some of their course requirements by completing the activities which were led by Crewe TA members.
The students were given a demonstration on how to conduct a full body search and learnt how to deal with people who may be confrontational when they are asked to be searched.
They were then giving a demonstration focusing on the techniques which are used during vehicle searches.
Students were then tasked with searching for a number of different items themselves which were hidden on a vehicle.
Platoon Team Leader Matt Styles, from the D Company 4 Mercian regiment, helped to supervise the sessions.
He said: “Hopefully, this visit gave them a good insight into different activities that the Territorial Army puts into practice during day-to-day duties.
“Students learnt all about searching people and vehicles and also found out more about the Territorial Army and the opportunities that exist within the army on their doorstep.”
