"Joining the Cadets at 14 ignited a desire in me to have a career in public services. I left school at 16 and researched the best way to achieve a career in the police force. I came across the Level 3 Public Services course at Northampton College and decided to enrol.. The physical side was great and I particularly enjoyed running, keep fit and the assault courses as well as the lessons themselves.
"Because I left school without A Levels I had to get enough UCAS points to be able to go on to study a BA Honours in Policing at The University of Northampton and thanks to the fantastic set up at Northampton College, I blew it out of the water.
"I’m now a Police Constable with Northamptonshire Police. I would advise anyone out there wanting to pursue a career in public services to go for it. You will achieve so much from the course, communication skills, team building and life skills which you can apply to any job. For me, the journey won’t stop here."
