Uniformed Public Services

  • Students

    This course gives you the opportunity to learn about and prepare for life in the public services sector. Thanks to the colleges close links with local public services you will have the opportunity to participate in work based learning such as riot training with the police and working with the Marines and RAF.

    You will study a range of topics including:

    • Public service skills
    • Public services fitness
    • Expedition and navigation skills
    • Employment in uniformed public services.

    Get ready to find out more about employment in public services, the skills you need and the fitness level you have to achieve.

    At Gloucestershire College, you’ll get the chance to enjoy the best facilities that rival any Further Education Institution. There’s a state of the art sports hall and fantastic classroom facilities. Also the college has a great relationship with the local public services; you’ll get the chance to go on riot training with the police, meet the range of armed services and may even get the chance to take part in one of the tri services training days. 

    In addition, you can improve on your English and Maths if you need to and you will work with one of our Professional Development Coaches to improve your employability skills.

    Throughout the course, you’ll be set assignments which will be graded and will make up your final mark at the end of the course.

    So, are you ready for the challenge?
