This course is equivalent to three A Levels and will give you a thorough and practical insight into the public services sector.
This course will prepare you for the mental and physical demands of life in the services, whether you decide to go straight into industry or continue to university-level
study. You’ll benefit from being taught by professionals with years of service in the uniformed public services and who still work in close collaboration with the police, fire
and ambulance services.
Designed to provide highly specialised work related knowledge, you will develop the understanding and skills sought by employers in a wide range of uniformed public services. With your positive outlook and willingness to step out of your comfort zone, you will take part in a number of different activities which may include: four-day residential to Snowdonia, two day expedition in Pembrokeshire, radio and communication,
Royal Marines visit, climbing, caving, kayaking, hill walking, service fitness/exercise drills, military unarmed combat/physical intervention and conflict management
through a series of role plays.
