Is this course right for me?

This course is a great starting point for anybody that would like to work with the public. The course is ideal for anybody that is considering careers in the police, fire service, prison service, army, navy and RAF We have a history of good grades on the Level 3 course and encourage students to push themselves to aim for Distinctions and to progress on to higher qualifications.

We run this course at 2 different sizes, both at Level 3. The reason for this is to allow for a joint focus between Public Services and a maths or English qualification for those that have not achieved one prior to starting. We can explain this in more detail at the enrolment events, or at interviews and open days.
