UPS Student Ashley Winwood
Ever since he was a little boy, 17-year-old Ashley Winwood has wanted to be a fireman.
To stand him in good stead for when he applies to join the fire service when he is 18, Ashley signed-up for the Level 3 Uniformed Public Services course.
Ashley said: “I would really recommend the course to anyone interested in joining the Police, Fire or Prison Service.
“It covers areas that are important in public services – such as leadership, team work, the effects of crime, government and politics, and command and control – and you get lots of practical experience too.
“I’ve learnt so much and my confidence has increased – it’s a good way to develop as an individual and get the skills you need for applying for jobs in the future.”
