STUDENT BLOG BY JAMES, BTEC LEVEL 3 IN PUBLIC SERVICES
Why did you choose this course?
I chose this course because I wanted to go onto have a career within Public Services. So by choosing this course, it has helped me to increase and expand my knowledge and give me a better understanding of what goes on and what it takes to work within the Uniformed Public Services sector.
Why did you choose this college?
I chose Bishop Burton College because I believed it offered the best units for the course I wanted to do.
How is college different from school?
The biggest difference between college and school is that you are treated as an adult. You are on first name basis with your tutors and course managers, as well as other members of staff and you do not need to wear a specific uniform.
What is your favourite part of the course?
My favourite part of the course is when we work alongside Humberside police doing the riot and protest training, as well as the stop and search training.
Where do you hope this course will lead?
I hope that this course will lead me to University where I wish to study criminology.
What facilities do you like the most and why?
I enjoy using the gym because it has everything I need from the treadmill to free weights, and it gives me a chance to blow off some steam as well as keep fit, it is also great as it is located on campus.
What is your favourite thing about being on campus?
My favourite thing about being on campus is being around my friends.
Do you currently live within our onsite accommodation or get the free college bus?
I am a residential student at Bishop Burton and I live on campus 7 days a week. One of the best things about being a residential student is that I have made so many new friends, you will also get to know members of staff and the wardens extremely well.
Is there anything else you'd like to mention?
The public service staff are amazing and are always there to provide you with support. Whether it is to do with the course or any personal matters such as mental health. My lecturers have also constantly pushed me to get the best and highest grade possible.
