Public Service


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.
