Level 3 Extended Diploma in Public Services
Previous Institution: 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 University to study Police Sciences 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.
