Iâ€™m Kai Weaver and I joined MPCT Gloucester in July 2015, I joined after passing my recruitment test and having my application on pause.
I came to the college being not very fit and was worried I wouldnâ€™t be able to cope but upon arriving I found out that the fitness levels were very varied and I wasnâ€™t as unfit as I thought, as I progressed I could see and feel my fitness levels increasing thanks to the effort and dedication by all the staff to help us improve. I also learnt a lot about the military that I didnâ€™t know, I heard what it was really like from the staffâ€™s experiences and how they coped with training. I also learnt a lot of little techniques that will help me in training from staffs Trewinnardâ€™s military skills lessons and staff Grilloâ€™s PT lessons.
I am due to start training on the 5/9/2016 for the Royal Marines, I know that without the help and support from the MPCT staff and learners I wouldnâ€™t have got this far.
