Studying Public Services offers you wider knowledge of the whole sector. You learn about all services including police, immigration and border control. There are both theoretical and practical units such as team sports, physical preparation, fitness testing and fire training. The team building activities at the beginning of the course really brought the class together quickly and we’re a very close knit group. This is an important skill for Public Services as you never work alone, always in teams of two or more. I’ve just got back from Washington DC where I took part in National Policing Week. Seeing how the police work on such a large scale event was really exciting and overwhelming. It was the first time I’d even been on a plane. The whole experience definitely reinforced my ambition.
