See yourself working as a Police Officer in the future? Ensuring you’re properly prepared for joining the force is a must. One student who was on the Level 3 Public Services course had this to say:
“I always knew I wanted to join the police force but you can’t officially apply until you are 18 so I chose the public services course to give me the knowledge I needed. The best thing about the course is covering all the different subjects like war and conflict, crime and politics, it gives you the knowledge you need whether you want to go into the army, fire service, navy etc. It’s definitely a practical course, you’re not sat at a desk all the time and get the chance to build up your fitness as well as doing assignments and project work. “
