What will I learn?

“The Public Services course at the College sparked my passion to become a Royal Air Force Physical Education/Training Officer. I gained a comprehensive insight into what it means to join each public service - due to the level of engagement and trips we experienced with each force. The support and encouragement from the staff was excellent; it gave me the room to fail and grow as many times as I needed and the motivation I needed to succeed.”Lewis Ray
