Public Services Pathway - Level 2 at Isle of Man College
The course is designed to equip learners with the knowledge, understanding and skills required for success when moving towards a career in the uniformed services such as the Police, Emergency Fire Services, Prison Service, Security or Armed Services.
You will investigate the uniformed services - what they are, what staff do and what career opportunities exist. You will also find out how services interact, and the meaning of inter-agency working.
The BTEC Level 2 Extended Certificate in Public Services is broadly equivalent to two GCSEs, and you will also take GCSE Maths and English during the same academic year.
You are expected to have a standard of literacy, numeracy and general education that is equivalent to four GCSEs at grade D. Alternatively, you may have undertaken suitable work experience.
GCSEs - via a series of examinations similar to those you have taken previously.
BTEC Units will be assessed using tutor-devised assignments. This would typically include written reports, presentations, booklets and information leaflets and group work.
Employment opportunities - entry into the uniformed and non-uniformed services.
Further vocational and academic qualifications - if you achieve an overall Pass grade or better you may wish to follow a Level 3 Pathway e.g. by taking the BTEC Level 3 Diploma in Business, which is broadly equivalent to two GCE A Levels. Alternatively, you may wish to enrol onto a different Level 3 course within the College
