Click on the AFCO link below, then click on your nearest AFCO to check opening times.
If you ring 03456 07 55 55, our virtual AFCO is manned 09:00 to 21:00 seven days a week apart from Bank Holidays & you get to speak to a real person too!
If you ring the above number, you can also arrange a presentation at your AFCO in School time and legitimately attend with your school's permission (speak to your Careers teacher). Alternatively, if there's a few interested, your careers teacher can ring your nearest AFCO and ask for AFCO careers staff to attend your school at a mutually convenient time.
If all else fails, try: www.prmc.co.uk it's quite handy too.
@ Ninja, the during school time seems a good idea, only problem is I have less than 3 weeks until my GCSEs and I can't really risk taking a day off. Esp. seeing as I will have all the time in the world, come 3 weeks.
The AFCOs normally operate an "open door" policy which means there's no need to book an appointment, you simply roll-up and someone will speak to you straight away, or within 13-30 minutes if they are very busy. You only need to pre-book an official presentation given to a group of like-minded individuals.
Similarly, just ring your local AFCO on the link below & ask to speak to a careers adviser if you have a specific query which cannot be answered by the serving sailors & marines that man the front desk & phone-lines.
As long as you are over 15 years & 9 months I'd advise you to submit the completed application forms before you finish school as it gets rather busy over the Summer with all the other school leavers applying.
