About the course

Building on the groundwork of the level 2 programme, this will prepare young men and women for potential employment in one of the public uniformed services. Again, the daily routine includes drill and physical training followed by a mixture of theory and practical sessions, tailored towards developing communication, self confidence
and leadership skills. Our students love our communications and major incidents units, giving you the knowledge and understanding of how to co-ordinate support and resource emergency services in a simulated road traffic collision. Outside the classroom, you’ll experience outdoor activities such as kayaking, raft building and climbing as well as physical training, ensuring you are ready to meet the fitness requirements for any uniformed service. Units are assessed throughout the year by assignments, coursework, observation of practical activity.
