Public Services is currently taught at level 2 and level 3. The units enable learners to develop knowledge and understanding of UK government policies; a knowledge of leadership styles and teamwork activities. They also equip the learner with the knowledge, skills, attitude and values to become a thoughtful informed citizen and public service employee. They develop an awareness of rights and responsibilities as well as respect for different religions, ethnic and national groups within UK society. The courses will be of particular interest to those interested in working with the public, such as paramedics, police force, fire service, armed forces and teaching.
Optional units allow students to plan, participate and reflect on outdoor and adventurous expeditions which are character building and essentially good fun!
