Public Services


Pathways are made up of courses focused on future careers or further education opportunities

A career in the public services means variety and new challenges every day, and we can help you get there.

Lessons don’t just take place in the classroom, work experience is an essential part of the Study Programme. We have close links to local services, many of whom visit the College to give advice on starting your career.

Students go on trips to test their skills in new environments, many of which involve military skills and outdoor pursuits.

Applicants, these courses are suitable for students that are aged 16-18 at time of enrolment.
