About the course

You will explore your knowledge and skills relevant to employment within the Public Services. These include roles like police officer, fire fighter and soldier. You will build your skills in leadership and teamwork and also learn about how the public services support government policies and relate to citizenship and diversity. Following this you will study a range of optional units focused on the skills and knowledge required for roles in the public services.

The course is highly practical and will involve you planning and going on expeditions into the countryside and developing your own personal fitness. If this sounds like you, or something you’d like to get into, then get in touch to find out more.

WHO CAN JOIN?

You will need a minimum of 5 GCSEs at Grade 4 or above, including English and Maths. You may also have completed a Level 2 Public Services programme, or another Level 2 qualification.

HOW WILL I BE ASSESSED

You will take a number of units in different topics to make up the 90 Credit Diploma. These will consist of a number of assignments which will be set and marked by your teachers. They will be based on real-life situations and will be assessed through a mixture of written and practical tasks.

Costs/EQUIPMENT

Students 16-18 year olds will not have to pay tuition fees, awarding body registration or exam fees. Please note: You may be entitled to a Bursary payment to help with costs such as travel to College, trips and equipment, a food allowance and childcare. To qualify you must be resident in the UK and meet the eligibility criteria which will include evidence of your financial circumstances.

Cost Information for students aged 19 and over on the start date of their studies.

Students aged 19 and over may be entitled to a Bursary payment to help with costs such as travel to College, trips and equipment and childcare. To qualify you must be resident in the UK and meet the eligibility criteria which will include evidence of your financial circumstances.

Level 3 Entitlement: students aged 19-23 years old who are studying for their first qualification at Level 3 will be fully-funded, which means your tuition fees, awarding body registration or exam fees will be covered.

Advanced Learner Loans

Learners who are aged 19 and over and studying Level 3 - 6 Further Education and training programmes.

Advanced Learner Loans will give learners in further education access to financial support for tuition costs, similar to that which is available in Higher Education. This means rather than an individual having to pay for their course upfront they have the option of accessing a loan, from the Student Loans Company, that they will only start to repay once they have left the course and are earning over £25,000.

Learners aged 19 and over will therefore have the option to either:

  • Pay the course fees themselves
  • Have an employer/sponsor pay the course fees for them
  • Apply for an Advanced Learner Loan to help pay for the course fees

The Advanced Learner Loans are for anyone who is:

  • Aged 19 and above at the start of their course
  • Studying at Level 3 - 6 in Further Education and training
  • Resident in the UK
  • Has not previously had a loan to do the same type and level of qualification.

The loan is available irrespective of the learner’s current employment status and the loan will not be means tested or subject to any credit checks.

Attendance requirements

3 days per week

AFTER COMPLETING THE COURSE

You can progress on to a higher education course, go into employment or look to start your training in the field of public services.
