Jack Regan
Public Services Level 3

"The course is practical and is a good stepping stone to a career in the public services. I like the variety of things we cover in class. We get involved in lots of training activities and our tutors have arranged visits to the Police and Army. I'd like to try to get into the Fire Brigade in the future."
