Due to increasing interest from young people in Jersey, Highlands College’s 6th Form College is due to launch a Level 3 Extended Diploma in Uniformed Services.
The qualification will be the first of its kind in Jersey, which is targeted at learners aged 16 and above, to provide students with an in-depth understanding of the principles of the uniformed services sector, and to allow them to explore the various avenues of work within it.
The course will enable learners to prepare to make a recruitment application or provide a basis for further study and progression towards the entry qualification of a specific service. Learners will come away with an insight into the practical qualities the industry requires, not only for uniformed services, but also for employment in general.
The two-year full-time course starts in September 2018 with applications being accepted now.
Martin Colley, Curriculum Manager of Sport, said: “This is an excellent opportunity for students to develop the skills and qualities needed to work in a range of uniformed services. They will gain invaluable experience of leadership skills, coaching skills, conflict management, personal protection, teamwork and communication. We hope to encourage the future generation of Jersey that working in the uniformed services industry is a very exciting and meaningful career choice.”
