Public Services are provided by the government to the people it serves. We will help you to develop the skills you will need, such as a knowledge of human behaviour and social issues alongside skills such as leadership, teamwork, and communication.

In addition to studying at college, we have industry links to provide hands-on work experience with employers such as Metropolitan Police, Old Bailey, London Ambulance Service, the London Fire Brigade and RAF Hendon.

A police officer in London can earn around £41,600, whilst an ambulance paramedic can earn £41,080. Working in the Army, you can earn between £15,008 as a junior soldier up to £80,000 as a medical officer, with a commander earning £32,482.

Hear from our panel of expert teachers, careers advisors, students and employers about the various career routes you can explore on completion of your course.
