Telford teenager Amy Bradley has joined the British Army to begin her training as an ammunition technician.
The 18-year-old, from Leegomery, secured her position after graduating with flying colours from a public uniformed services course at Telford College.
The former Charlton School student said the college had helped her to discover the career of her dreams.

“My course really helped me get to where I am today, I started off as a lazy student who didn’t really know which direction to go in.
“My run time for 1.5 miles was over 18 minutes when I first joined, but by the end of my level three public uniformed services course at Telford College, I got it down to 12 minutes and 30 seconds.
“My tutors were really inspiring, they have so much knowledge and experience I recommend the PUS courses to anyone who’s looking for an active career or being part of the uniformed services.
“I thought I wanted to be in the police but after meeting all of the services I changed my mind to the British army.”
Telford College’s public uniformed services tutor Craig Stockman added: “Amy is proof that if you put your mind to something you really can achieve it.
“She worked hard on the coursework and especially her fitness, and now she’s reaping the rewards. Amy will now have an adventurous career, and we wish her all the best.”
