What's Involved

This course provides great opportunities for learners to develop key skills required to work in the public services, for example the police, fire and armed forces or to progress to further education and study, within this area.

Learners will explore entry requirements to services and selection processes, as well as some other key related topics such as Government funding, citizenship, teamwork, leadership and navigation.

The majority of the course is classroom based with some practical and outdoor activities. Typically you will spend three days in college attending classes, lectures and group work. To be successful all potential leaners must be prepared to work and study outside of college.

Entry Requirements

This is a progression programme from our Level 3 90 Credit Diploma. External candidates may be able to join if they have the correct combination of units.

Where will it take me?

Successful completion of this course can lead to entry to university or higher education. Depending on age by the completion of the course, you can also apply to the majority of the public services for employment.

Course Assessment Method

As with other BTEC courses, this programme is based on producing a portfolio of work, which you will create over the duration of your course. All of your assessments will be internally set by your tutors, and these could be essays, reports, posters, practical assessments or role plays. All assessments are marked against criteria set by BTEC and you can achieve Pass, Merit or Distinction grades for individual units and then ultimately your whole course.
