Charlotte is currently studying Uniformed Services at Cambridge Regional College. Her new apprenticeship is a distance-based apprenticeship/mentorship with the WCoSP, meaning she can continue with her present studies.
She is enthusiastic about the new possibilities available to her. ‘I am very excited by this opportunity and gaining the chance to meet interesting people and visit places not always accessible to everyone. It is based around all aspects and opportunities within the modern security sector. Over this time, I will have to attend at least 6 events and will get the chance to visit and speak with people working in many aspects of security, for example members of the Police Force and possibly the London Mint. Each month I will have contact with my assigned mentor and have the chance to ask many questions and gain support and information. My first event will be in November, in London, for my official enrolment.’
On 21st September, Sgt Wallace attended a short (socially distanced) ceremony at Waterbeach Cadet Training Centre which was attended by Colonel Mclean, formerly Corps Colonel Reserves Intelligence Corps, and now Deputy Commander Reserves Sandhurst Groups. Also present was the Commandant of Cambridgeshire ACF, Colonel Fraser-Hitchen, along with other officers and Detachment Commander Vicky Houghton. The Colonels both congratulated Charlotte, and Colonel Mclean presented her with an Intelligence Corps commemorative medallion.
Colonel Mclean said; ‘Our congratulations go to her, and we wish her all the best in the future, whichever path she chooses.’
Commandant Colonel Fraser-Hitchen said; ‘For me, Charlottes achievements are the epitome of all that is good about the Army Cadet Force, she is only the second apprentice to be picked up by this scheme which sees her being mentored by a number of professionals for the next four years. She has only been able to do that of course, with the significant training, experiences and activities that she’s been able to gain from her service in the ACF. She’s done really well, she’s put the effort in, she knows exactly where she is going, so very, very well done to her.’
