“I have always known that I wanted to join the Police. I was planning to stay on at sixth form but the subjects wouldn’t give me the qualifications I need to gain entry to the Police. I was initially nervous about coming to College as I didn’t know anyone but I took the plunge and applied for the Level 3 Public Services course. “It was definitely the right choice to come to College as the course has enabled me to focus on the career choice I want to take, and it gives you an insight into the variety of roles there are in the Public Services. “The tutors have helped me to prepare for the interview process to be a Special Constable in the Police. They advised me on the information required and research I needed to do to perform well in the interview. The course also included practising the tests that you have to do as part of the interview process. “I’ve really enjoyed the outdoor events such as expeditions and practical team activities such as white water rafting and Event Station at Carden Park which involves segways, archery, high ropes and air rifles. We also took part in a residential to Krakow in Poland where we visited Schindler’s Factory, Auschwitz Concentration Camp, an aircraft museum and we toured and learnt about the city. “I’m going to progress on to the HND at the College and then covert to a Policing Degree at the University of Chester which will give me the qualifications I need to join the police.”
