East Riding College Public Services Course Gets Off to a Uniformed Start

30th January 2006 10:52am - Return to press releases

Students who have recently started the East Riding College BTEC 1st Diploma in Public Services in January have recently been given 'public service jackets' to start them off on their new course.

The College paid for the jackets for the students to wear whilst on the course, as part of their uniform. The course is designed specifically for young people aged 16-18 who are looking to pursue a career in a variety of services such as the Fire Service, Police, Army, Navy, Royal Marines, Customs and Excise, NHS, Ambulance, RAF, Coastguard or Government.

Students on the course are currently developing and maintaining a good level of fitness as well as learning and developing the knowledge, understanding and skills required for success in employment in the public services.

Although the course has only been running a short time, the students have already had a number of public speakers and visits out to a number of public service areas such as the police, coastguard and the army.
The College are looking to recruit more students to this course at the Bridlington site in September. If you have an interest in a career in the Public Services and wish to receive more information on this course, please contact Learner Services at East Riding College on 0845 120 0037.
