About the Course

The Public service programme is one of our long term provisions that actively engage students and supports them in making a positive progression. The aims of the BTEC Level 1/Level 2 First Award in Public Services are to

  • Enable learners to develop a broad and comprehensive understanding of the public service sector
  • Provide relevant and appropriate public services content for 14−16 year olds
  • Inspire and enthuse learners to consider a career in the public service sector
  • Give learners the opportunity to gain a broad knowledge and understanding of, and develop skills in, the public service sector
  • Support progression into a more specialised Level 3 vocational or academic course or into an apprenticeship
  • Give learners the potential opportunity, in due course, to enter employment within a wide range of junior job roles across the public service sector
  • Provide opportunities for the development of transferable skills related to study and vocational application that provide a platform for success both within the public services and elsewhere.
