Level 3 Extended Diploma in Public Services
Previous school: Bryn Alyn School
I knew I wanted to be in the Public Uniformed Services, and after workshops by the police on the course, I was inspired. I am going to Cardiff Metropolitan University to study for a Professional Policing Degree after college. You need to be motivated on this course and try your best – but there is lots of support from teachers and progression specialists. The College is great because there are so many opportunities for you here, like enrichment activities.
Level 3 Public Uniformed Services
Previous school: Belvidere School
I want to join a service and do a physical career, so this course suited me well. I like how hands-on it is and I really enjoyed the overnight expeditions with the Army. This course helps you decide if you are serious about a future in the Services – I will be joining the Marines next year.
