Army Foundation College are holding an Open Day at the College in Harrogate on Saturday 8th December.

AFC Harrogate offers an alternative to college. It gives 16-18 year olds the opportunity to get involved in sports and skills coaching, discover how to be part of a team, build confidence and develop leadership skills – all while earning a salary. There are two intakes each year, in March and September as well as two course length options – either 23 or 49 weeks. At the end of the course, they can then choose whether to go on to join the British Army in a full-time job, or pursue a civilian career with valuable training to see them set for success.
