Construction students help build training facility at Tregantle Fort

On Wednesday 25 June, a group of our City College Plymouth Construction students visited Tregantle Fort, to see a demonstration of a training facility they helped to create.

Work undertaken at the Fort has seen four open classrooms transformed into the mock-up of the inside of a ship, complete with 18 separate compartments. The facility is being used by the Military Training Unit (MTU), based at HMS Raleigh, to teach sailors the correct routines for searching vessels for intruders as part of the ship’s protection team.
