This qualification aims to make you an informed and prepared potential recruit for one of our many uniformed and public service organisations. It will prepare you to make a recruitment application or provide a basis if you want to go on and study at a higher level, or towards the entry qualification of a specific service. It will provide you with an insight into the practical qualities you will require, not only for uniformed services, but also for employment in general.
The course covers a wide range of subjects including:
Uniformed Public Services Employment
Public Service Skills
Career Planning for the Public Services
Adventurous Activities and Teamwork for the Public Services (this will include a one week residential visit to an appropriate outdoor activity centre)

Students will have the opportunity to visit a variety of public services and will also gain knowledge of the industry from a wide range of speakers.
Students may also choose to study for a GCSE to increase their qualifications, or to resit a previous GCSE subject to improve a grade. To enhance employment opportunities the course may also have additional qualifications built into the programme.
You should have 4 GCSEs at grade D or above, including English and maths.
The course is continuously assessed with assignments, projects and case studies. You will develop a responsible and co-operative approach to working on your own and in groups, using practical activities and presentations.
