Public Services

Are you motivated and highly driven? Do you see yourself working in the Royal Navy, RAF or police force?

You will be taught by highly experienced staff from a variety of backgrounds in the public services, with many of our staff having worked on the front line in the army, with the police and firefighters.

You can benefit from our extensive links in both the armed and emergency services, including Cheshire Police, and be inspired by regular guest talks and presentations. This will also give you knowledge on how to be successful while serving in public services. Our outstanding enrichment offer includes regular trips and sporting activities for students.

There will be an opportunity to work with the army, develop your physical fitness and gain an insight into working in a military environment. To enhance your college experience you can expect trips to the Low Mill Outdoor Education Centre for an educational group activity experience. You can also expect to take part in riot training with the Cheshire and Merseyside Police so you can understand what is required if you want to become a riot control police officer.

Student Success

Daniel James, a former student from The County High School Leftwich, is currently in his final year of Public Services Level 3. From a young age, Daniel knew he wanted to work in the uniformed services, having an Uncle who was in the RAF. Opting to study the Public Services course seemed a natural choice. After receiving encouragement and support from his tutors, Daniel put forward an application to become a Personal Training Instructor with the RAF. He has since passed his first interview and is awaiting the next stage of the application.

Daniel credits the course and his tutors for setting him on the path to his dream career.
