Starting my training at HMS Raleigh 5th sep, steward apprentice, is anyone else starting this date? Also can anyone who has completed training/apprenticeship give me an idea of what to expect, what its like at Raleigh, the places you have been etc

Thanks

Raleigh isn't too bad! For the first 3 weeks or so, you'll be doing paperwork, English, maths and ICT and then after that you'll get to delve into the actual practical training side of it! You'll get Friday afternoons off which gives you ample time to head down to the Ships Company bar! And on rare occasions you'll get Wednesday afternoons off as well, as that's when the RN do their sports malarkey. I'm a chef but I know a little bit about the stewards course as I shared a mess with a couple of stewards for a month or so, I dont know a whole lot but I know some things but on a different note I believe you'll be in my mess, so if you need anything or have a couple questions then feel free to drop me a message!:)

Hi guys, I start 18th September. I had shin splints for several months even during my prnc. I believe they have gone but I am concerned they could come back. For anyone that has passed raleigh could you please tell me how often you do phys that is running or circuit training? (I don't have to worry about swimming) is it every day or every few days? Thank you
