PUBLIC SERVICES

Public Services includes a large variety of essential roles in UK society, from the police to ambulance paramedic to fire service and the Armed Forces. Our courses provide a comprehensive overview of how these services are run, giving you the knowledge and skills needed to work in the sector.

Public services are provided by government to the people it serves, and require a knowledge of human behaviour and social issues, alongside skills such as leadership, teamwork and communication.

In addition to studying at college, we have industry links to provide hands-on work experience with employers such as Metropolitan Police, Old Bailey, London Ambulance Service, the London Fire Brigade and RAF Hendon.

A police officer in London can earn around £41,600, whilst an ambulance paramedic can earn £41,080. Working in the Army, you can earn between £15,008 as a junior soldier up to £80,000 as a medical officer, with a commander earning £32,482.

Career options include:

  • Police Officer
  • Police Community Support Officer
  • Ambulance Paramedic
  • Fire Officer
  • Prison Officer
