Public Services

Develop the physical and academic skills required for successful careers in the Police, Fire and Rescue, Prison Services and Armed Forces.

Courses are designed with significant input from the sector. This means the relevant practical and academic elements are incorporated to develop the essential skills required for a career in the public services.

We have established links with the public services and offer a programme of problem solving and physical fitness from the Royal Marines.

Students at Levels 2 and 3 will take the Duke of Edinburgh Award.

We are looking forward to you joining us in September when you start your journey towards creating an outstanding future.
