Exeter College students shine to win a tough Royal Navy team building and leadership contest.

Twenty students from the Public Services Level 2 and 3 courses came top in the recently held Royal Navy Pier Cellars Inter College Resource and Initiative Challenge.

The event was held at the Royal Naval outdoor training centre at Pier Cellars near Torpoint, in Cornwall, and involved a range of team building and leadership activities. The Exeter College students competed against teams from other local colleges in the competition held between April 26th and 27th.

The competition saw the Exeter College teams overcome a number of mental and physical obstacles and tasks set to test their teamwork and leadership capabilities.

Paul Hepburn, Public Services Lecturer Lead Tutor, said: "After a very competitive series of events, some excellent teamwork and great determination our teams won the trophy for the overall winning College."

Public Services courses at Exeter College allow learners to develop the essential knowledge, understanding and skills common for a range of Public Services such as Police, Fire, Ambulance, Armed Forces, Prison Services, Customs and Excise, and wider Community Services (such as Probation and Social Services).
