The public services sector incorporates all of the uniformed and non-uniformed public services such as the police, fire service and the armed forces. It is a dynamic and vitally important sector in which to start your career.

Our courses will provide you with extensive practical knowledge of the public services sector and teach you a range of industry skills so you can perform effectively in any public services role.

This qualification is equivalent to 3 A-levels, giving you a wide variety of options at university, or you could progress into the public service sector.

Students will learn a variety of modules including teamwork and leadership, outdoor and adventure activities, employability skills, and crime and its effect on society and individuals. In addition to this they will gain an improved understanding of the relationship between public services and the law by taking part in college visits to the Houses of Parliament, Bletchley Park and Courts of Law.

This is a full time course taking place on three days per week from 9.00am - 4:30pm. There will be a mix of practical and theoretical work which is split into 1 to 2 hour lessons, and we aim to have at least one offsite trip each month. You will have regular breaks, including lunch.
