This qualification is for learners aged pre 16 and above. The qualification aims to inform and prepare potential recruits. It will enable learners to prepare to make a recruitment application or provide a basis for further study and progression towards the entry qualification of a specific service. It will provide learners with an insight into the practical qualities they require, not only for the uniformed services, but also for employment in general.
How is the course structured and graded?
The course is split into different units, ranging from Physical Fitness for the Uniformed Services to Exploring Equality and Diversity for the Uniformed Services. Learners must achieve 43 credits, 35 from the mandatory units and a minimum of eight credits from the optional units (two units).
Will this course be suitable for me?
The course is designed to to give an understanding of the uniformed public sector and an opportunity to investigate career opportunities. There are no formal entry requirements, although we would expect students to be involved in the Combined Cadet Force (CCF)
programme and the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme.
This is a brand new course for Bredon School and one we feel would be of great interest to our students.
What could this course lead to?
Students who achieve this qualification could progress further to Level 3 courses in Certificate in Knowledge of Policing or a Level 3 Diploma for Entry to the Uniformed
NCFE Level 2 Diploma for entry to the Uniform Services
