  • BW alumni returns to Brooke Weston to offer career advice

    Published 02/05/17

    Former student Sub Lieutenant Emma Turner returned to Brooke Weston to give a presentation about life within the Navy and advise any students interested in a career in the armed forces.

    Emma, who left Brooke Weston in 2015 talked about her experiences so far within the Royal Navy and the opportunities that are available within the the military. She said ‘I only decided to apply for the Navy at the last minute as I realised university wasn’t for me. The opportunities I could gain from joining the Navy, were just too good to miss. I already have a degree in Management and Leadership after only one year and I have also qualified as a Ski Instructor which the Navy paid me to do during my two week Adventure Training which we have every year. To join the Navy you need to be a logical thinker, a team player and a natural leader, someone that can take charge when things are going wrong. People in sports teams are often really good examples as they have been used to working as a team so think logically and tactically. I was always into sport when I was at Brooke Weston, which I think, stood me in good stead.
