  • The frustrations of the application process and the fun of phase 1 - A blog by Fox

    One of our members has been hiding her light under a bushel! I have just found the excellent blog written by our very own Fox. Starting right at the beginning of the application process in Sept 2011, she charts the highs and lows of the application and interview process, including being given a place and then having it taken away! Her most recent posts are about her experiences in phase 1. An invaluable insight into what potential cadets might face in their journey to getting that cadetship and what to expect when they get there. I'm looking forward to reading about how she gets on during her next phase and beyond!

    We will get it onto our blog list, but meanwhile the link is here: http://foxatsea.wordpress.com/

          I just wanted to congratulate Fox on her blog (again), it is a pleasure to read, has stunning pictures, and has some truly excellent advice and observations, I wish I'd written it!

          I would particularly recommend her most recent couple of posts: Some words of information and advice is a repost from a chief mate on a cargo ship, and is a great place to start for anyone wanting to know what life onboard consists of, first as a cadet, and then 3rd, 2nd and C/O and this one about the dreaded Work Based Learning, which brought back memories I'd tried to suppress! (Particularly good for Fleetwood FD cadets).
