Public Services

 

Public Services

No two days are the same with a job in the uniformed public services. Few other careers offer as much opportunity for excitement, satisfaction, camaraderie or duty.

With opportunities that span from ambulance driver to police officer, Royal Marine to prison officer, for many, it’s more than a job; it’s a vocation. These careers give you a real chance to make a difference to your community, to improve the lives of others and leave your mark on society.

So, if you’re looking for more than a 9 to 5 job and want a career that’s as exciting as it is rewarding, a course in public services can provide you with an excellent first step.

Why study public services with us?
Based at our Langley College, our courses aim to give you the skills and knowledge required for a successful career in a range of public services, including the police, the fire service, the ambulance service, rescue services, prison service, NHS, local authorities and the armed forces.

From fitness exercises with the army to quizzing your local MP in Westminster, your learning will combine classroom theory, debate and plenty of practical activities across a variety of different areas. This will include physical challenges designed to develop your skills, role-playing, team-building exercises, problem-solving tasks and in-depth research.

Our tutors all have strong links to the industry, with most of them being either serving or former members of a uniformed public service. This means you can be assured that the advice and stories they share provide an honest and accurate insight into the careers and the challenges you may face in the sector today.

 
 

You’ll also get the chance to go on a variety of visits to organisations, locations and events. These may include the House of Commons, the Metropolitan Police Training Centre, The Emergency Services Show, outdoor activity centres or even an adventure trek through local Black Park. And you’ll be able to take part in presentations, mock interviews and talks from employers who regularly visit the College. So when it comes to taking the next step into the workplace, you’ll know exactly what to expect.

Where could it take you?
A public services qualification is ideal preparation for a career in one of the uniformed public services, such as the police, fire, ambulance, prison services, the Army, Royal Navy or Royal Air Force. Alternatively, it could be a platform for further study, like a policing degree or a career in the civil service.
