Public Services learners

Public services are at the very heart of our community, helping our country to function safely and cope in times of crisis. So, if you pursue a profession in the uniformed or non-uniformed public services, you’ll be playing a vital role in society, with a very rewarding career ahead of you.

A qualification in public services leads to a variety of exciting career options and high-octane frontline roles. If you’re passionate about becoming a paramedic, fancy being a fire fighter, or maybe even a marine, our public services courses will help you become a force for good!

Spanning a range of career routes, you can progress onto roles in the emergency services, law enforcement, social services and more, with jobs in:

  • The Army, Royal Air Force, and Royal Marines
  • The Police service
  • The Fire service
  • Security and intelligence services
  • Border control and immigration services
  • Civil enforcement
  • Paramedic
  • Prison and probation services
  • Crime scene investigation.

With public services courses at level 1, 2, and 3, you’ll develop the skills and knowledge you need to thrive in your career. Our courses have a combination of theory and practical activities. Including trips, workshops, and guest speakers to enrich your learning, you’ll gain vocational experience to boost your career prospects.

After completing our public services courses, you’ll be ready for the world of work.

We cover a variety of subjects and have a lot of links with the public services. We’re taught by serving or ex members of a range of public services like Police Community Support Officers, giving us a true insight into the role. As an outdoor enthusiast, I also love the practical side of the course too, such as climbing, abseiling and paddle boarding.
