Public Services

Take a service call from the professionals! Have you always wanted to be involved with helping people when they most need it, but are unsure which of the uniformed or emergency services would suit you best?

Our Public Services courses will prepare you for your career in uniform whether it’s in the Police, Ambulance, Fire or Armed Services. Throughout the course you will gain the qualifications, skills and competencies you need to help you prepare for your recruitment process. You might even decide to use the experience and qualifications you gain to move onto a university course.

You will have the chance to take part in many practical training sessions and role play. You may be able to visit a Royal Navy ship, go on exercises with South Wales police, attend the ‘Look at life’ days with the Royal Marines plus trips to local fire stations.

As well as learning about law and criminology. Visits from serving members of the Police, Army, Fire Service and others gives you an insight into the day to day work of the professionals in your chosen area.
