Course Overview

Although the Public Sector, including the Armed Forces, the NHS, the Police Service and Fire Service are also shrinking, they still remain the largest employers in the UK. However, entry has never been tougher, because for those employers it is now very much a "buyer's market" – they can pick and choose who they want to take on. But there is light at the end of the tunnel . . . .

The brand-new Level 3 Public Services course from My Distance Learning College will prepare you to get ahead of the competition for these highly sought-after jobs.

This fascinating course focuses on the knowledge and techniques you will need to effectively put yourself at a significant advantage over other jobseekers by giving you the specialist knowledge of the procedures and processes the Public Services use in their recruitment campaigns. Unlike most commercial companies, Public Service organisations have structured recruitment and selection procedures, often accompanied by convoluted and detailed application forms and processes that many jobseekers find confusing, even frightening.

The Public Services also favour those individuals that have a positive and enthusiastic attitude, and demonstrate a willingness and aptitude for training. You will learn all about these issues, and more, through studying this unique course.

What will I learn on the Course?

The course is exhaustive and comprehensive. It teaches you all of the above, and analyses the opportunities available within the uniformed and non-uniformed organisations that make up our huge Public Services sector in the UK. It devotes units to the importance of physical fitness and well being, explains what is required, and perhaps most importantly, why. It covers health and safety, workplace hazards and risks assessments, fire prevention and a wide range of essential knowledge and skills that many applicants simply won't possess. But you will if you study this course.

The course also covers the components making up the routine, training and aptitude required in our Armed Forces, how and why they are taught, and gives an insight into the specifics that the average civilian doesn't have a clue about. Once you've completed this course, you will no longer be an "average" civilian – you'll have "the knowledge".

Finally, government policy, current affairs and essential background information on the workings of government (including fascinating insights into the House of Commons and House of Lords), and how we are affected by the European Union, rounds the course off.

A glance at the "snapshot" tab will give you a more detailed rundown of the subjects taught, and what you can expect. All fascinating and enlightening topics, with which you will be familiar and knowledgeable by the time you complete this excellent Course.
