Public Services

A career in Public Services relates to anything from the Police Force, the Armed Forces, the Emergency Services, and the Prison Service. People in this industry have the important responsibility of keeping us safe, being the first to react to criminal activity and emergencies, and keep order in society. A successful career in the services requires outstanding dedication, discipline and communication skills, but is incredibly rewarding.

What will I do?

From learning basic survival skills, to understanding the cause and control of war and conflict, to drilling and marching, no two days will be the same. You will learn more about yourself through hard work and dedication and prepare for entry in your chosen career. All of our tutors are highly experienced in their respective fields and have vast industry links. You will take on work experience relevant to your chosen specialism, such as with Thames Valley Police. You will take part in volunteering and fundraising, learning how to work successfully in a team and in different leadership positions. You will also go on expeditions and orienteering trips, putting what you’ve learnt in the classroom to the test out in the field.

The Public Services department works closely with local authorities and programmes, including the Young Ambulance Citizens Programme.
