This was an ideal opportunity to demonstrate to Rear Admiral Jeong Sang Youn how we, at the RNLA, deliver world class training

Lieutenant Commander Richard Bicknell, Royal Naval Leadership Academy (RNLA)

Here the delegation saw the 4.5” Gun demonstrated by Petty Officer Alan Bates who explained the value of allowing trainees hands-on access to weaponry, an experience unavailable through computer simulations.

The group then moved to the Royal Naval Leadership Academy (RNLA) where they watched trainees tackle the High Ropes, an exercise that tests not only their skill and bravery but also their ability to work as a team.

The ropes are designed so that no individual can climb them alone – to reach the next stage of the exercise trainees must work together.

The delegates then witnessed a classroom session where further aspects of leadership development were being taught.

Speaking of the visit, Lieutenant Commander Richard Bicknell said, “This was an ideal opportunity to demonstrate to Rear Admiral Jeong Sang Youn how we, at the RNLA, deliver world class training to ensure that Royal Navy has leaders with the capability and spirit to fight and win in any situation.”
