“The best bit about the course is definitely all of the practical activities we get to take part in. We do regular drills, go to FitBox and even got the chance to go to Ninja Warrior. They’re really fun but are also helping to prepare me for the future, as I want to work at the prison.”

Public Services Level 2

“I’m lucky enough to be going to Tenerife with the college next term, where we’ll get to complete more work experience. I’ll be working within the local tourism industry, which will be great experience as I’d like to train as Flight Attendant.”
