What Our Students Say

“So the tutors are great for a number of reasons – they’re casual, you don’t feel like you’re being forced to do anything that’s uncomfortable, they’re not strict, they’ll have a laugh with you if you want to and they know how to get stuff done when they need to if we’re on a bit of a time crunch, but they also know how to have a bit of fun and not put pressure on you – and they’re great, they’re always there to give you information if you need it for at-home tasks and they’re always on Google Hangouts to message you if you need anything and they get back to you really quickly.”

“I’m working really well with my tutors – they’re really supportive and we just have a laugh. It’s like a really nice atmosphere. I think the facilities are really fantastic.”

Dan

I think I’ve really enjoyed the fact that I’ve had to make new friendships, especially because I didn’t know anyone coming in – but after the first few weeks I think I’ve adapted to it really well.

About Public Services

Public Services offers public services and military preparation courses that equip students with the skills needed to succeed. The department’s strong links with the West Yorkshire Police, Army, Royal Navy, West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue and West Yorkshire Ambulance Service, provide a real insight into students’ particular areas of interest. We also work with Safeguard Armour who generously donated protective clothing for our courses.
