What career opportunities can this lead to?
Careers in the industry are very popular and therefore the job market is very competitive. Recent changes have opened up increased opportunities for part-time employment within the armed forces due to the increase of Reservists. Police officer roles are often selected from internal staff and therefore entry requires prior experience such as that of a Special Constable or PCSO. Fire and Rescue Service jobs are more readily available through the part time retained duty system or full time within larger cities. The uniformed public services are essential and are required by the country to protect the public. This programme will help you develop the skills needed to work in uniformed public services. On this programme you will learn about the job roles and entry processes required to join the uniformed public services. Upon successful completion progression could be onto a Level 3 course such as Uniformed Public Services or Criminology; other options could be Military Preparation College or directly into employment depending on age, experience and other qualifications.
