This is a practical course combining a physical fitness programme with class sessions covering theory, research and group activities. You will study different types of employment in public services and develop skills such as team working and problem solving. An important part of the course is the opportunity to meet staff from the public services.

The course is completed through assignments and there is no exam. Some assignments involve assessment on practical and team tasks, others involve some individual research and presentation of your findings.

The public services have high standards of behaviour, dress and timekeeping, so this course is for students who are prepared to be responsible and self disciplined amd a reference wil be required from a school or previous employer. 

Successful students can then progress onto the Level 2 in Public Services.
