Course Information

Students on this NCFE Diploma Level 1 course will develop the self-discipline, communication, problem-solving, and teamwork skills required to succeed in uniformed service careers. You will complete fitness training, tutorials and voluntary opportunities, and will visit the uniformed services at their training centres to gain industry insight. You’ll also experience adventure activities such as bouldering and kayaking.

Public Services students engage with a wide range of public service workers. During the 2019/2020 academic year, this included working with West Yorkshire Police in public order training and police dog handling. Students also experienced emergency planning exercises with Leeds City Council, West Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Authority, and West Yorkshire Ambulance Service. They also had visits from prison officers to speak about their roles. We also had students that visited the Royal Marine Commando Training Centre in Lymptone and six learners had the opportunity to visit Auschwitz with the Holocuast Educational Trust.
