Public Services students have taken part in a training activity with the Army's Royal Corps of Signals (Royal Signals).
The Royal Signals, who provide the Army's communication network which commanders use to give orders to their forces, set the students a specific task.
This involved using the Army's radio headsets to give coordinates so that enemy positions could be identified on a map.
The task called on the students to work as teams, listen carefully and quickly decipher information given over the radio. Maths was incorporated with the students having to plot locations on a map.
Public Services tutor and organiser of the day, Bridget Slater, said: "The day was fantastic. The students really got a feel for what it would be like out in the field and they thoroughly enjoyed it."
