About Public Services

Our Public Services courses are designed to prepare students for successful entry into any of the uniformed public services so the learning is focused upon investigating the work of the Police Service, Fire & Rescue Service, Ambulance Service, Armed Forces and Prison Service.

These public services are organised and financed by the government to benefit society. There is a wide range of occupations across the uniformed protective services and our aim to prepare you with the right skills and experience to gain employment and progress.

You’ll cover topics and training such as Citizenship and Diversity, Behaviour and Discipline, Physical Preparation, Health and Wellbeing, Teamwork, Leadership and Communication and more. With options to study at our Cardiff International Sports Campus or our Barry Campus in the Vale.
