Park House School


The Public Service courses provides students with essential skills, giving them potential opportunities for future employment, and allows students to gain a broad knowledge and understanding of a multitude of jobs within the public sector. 

​Students learn the purpose and structure of numerous services and discover essential skills for a wide range of careers such as the armed services (British Army, Royal Navy, RAF); the emergency services (Police Force, Fire and Rescue Service, Ambulance Service); local authorities (City/County/Unitary Councils) and central government.

​Broken down into units of coursework and an exam unit, the courses delve into a number of different areas that familiarise our students with the work they carry out, and develop their knowledge on how best to pursue a career within a chosen service. Although some of the work consists of written reports and presentations, some units require a more interactive approach such as role playing, fitness testing, and teamwork exercises.

​Whatever career our students wish to choose within the public sector, Public Services is filled with rich and beneficial experiences that are key in providing the first steps towards it.
