Public Services BTEC Diploma
Our public services qualification will prepare and train you for a role within the police force, fire service, ambulance service or armed forces.
Do you want to know what it is like to work in the police force or fire brigade?
Well we do!
We have two members of staff who have a HUGE amount of experience as they were both in these services. They will teach you how to look for work in a service of your choice, teach you about becoming a good citizen in your community, the value of teamwork and take you for regular fitness tests and long jogs around the park- they will even join in!
This is an experience in learning that you will not forget from the beginning of the course in induction week to the very end in June. You will have the opportunity to go on outward bound course in Dorset where you do hiking, kayaking, climbing, shooting and camp over night for a whole week! This seperates the men from the boys and the women from the girls!
You will be taught through a mix of classroom and practical activities, including:
- health and fitness
- leadership and team building
- land navigation and outdoor pursuits
You will be continually assessed throughout the year, producing written assignments, online tests, presentations and role play. You will also be observed by your tutors and peers.
On this course you can achieve a pass, merit or distinction grade. If you wish to progress on to our Level 3 programme you must achieve at least a merit.
BTEC Diploma in Public Services Level 1, which is offered at Barking & Dagenham College.
