Key Stage 5-
The BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Public Services is designed to equip learners with the knowledge, understanding and skills required for a successful career in any of the uniformed or non-uniformed Public Services.
Public Services are at the very heart of our community, and those who pursue a career within one of the public services will be fulfilling a vital role in society. The BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Public Services has a very practical emphasis. On completion, learners will have taken an important first step onto the ladder of a well structured and rewarding career with one of the largest employment sectors in the country.
We currently offer the BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Public Services (Uniformed) at St George's Academy. However, a non-uniformed option is available.
The BTEC Level 3 Extended diploma in Public Services is a 2 year course that consists of 5 mandatory units, plus optional units that provide a combined total of 180 credits. The Level 3 diploma carries up to 420 UCAS points and is broadly equivalent to 3.5 A levels graded A*-C. The course is available for uniformed and non-uniformed pathways.
All the units are assessed by course work. Assessment methods could include essays, projects, presentations and attendance at practical events such as residential experiences and other activities. Our students also use training opportunities provided by the emergency services and armed forces.
You may wish to use the qualification and UCAS points to gain entry to a university. Students who go to university do not necessarily need to study a public service related degree. Others may use the qualification in order to enter specialist areas of employment, obtain a commission in the Armed Services or seek direct employment in the public service sector.
COURSE ENTRY REQUIREMENTS
In addition to the minimum requirement for Level 3 programmes, students should have a grade C or above in GCSE Maths and English.
