This qualification aims to provide informed and prepared potential recruits to the services. It will enable students to prepare to make a recruitment application or provide a basis for further study and progression towards the entry qualification of a specific service. It will also provide an insight into the practical qualities they require, not only for uniformed services, but also for employment in general.

Entry requirements

3 or 4 subjects at grade 3 ideally including English and Maths.

What will I study?

The course is made up of a range of units including;

  • The Role and Work of the Public Services (E)
  • Working Skills in the Public Services Sector
  • Citizenship, Society and the Public Services (E)

E = externally set examined units.

We have excellent and well-established links with the Police Force, Army, Navy and RAF, Fire Service, Ambulance, Prison and Probation service who actively contribute to the work-related element of the course.

You can re-sit GCSE Maths and/or English alongside this course.

Method of delivery

Most sessions are theory sessions, but very applied. You will have a fitness session each week. This course also involves lots of work-related activity, including guest speakers and sessions delivered by the Army, Navy, RAF, Police and the Fire and Rescue Service.

How will I be assessed?

E = externally set examined units. The other units are assessed through assignments, case studies, practical observations and presentations.

Good course combinations

This is a full-time course. It is not possible to combine this course with other Vocational, Apprenticeship or A Level programmes.
