Do you like to be the best?
Challenge your body and mind?
Be the strongest mentally and physically?

There are few areas of study more challenging than the public services and military academy. If you live for the thrill of pushing your limits then this could be the career for you.

Public services and military service are careers which attract a certain kind of person, with a certain kind of personality and demand a specific set of skills. You will need to be dedicated, motivated and committed to continuous improvement as you develop throughout your time with us.

You will be exposed to outstanding opportunities, both at the college campus and other locations throughout the country. For example, abseiling, canoeing, mountaineering and the Three Peaks challenge.

If you are active, adventurous and have a desire to improve, this could well be the career for you!

Today a student, tomorrow a… Customs and Excise Officer, Firefighter, Health and Safety Officer, Local Government Executive, Member of the Armed Forces, Outdoor Pursuits Leader, Paramedic , Police Officer, or a Prison Officer.
