This course offers specialist studies covering both the uniformed (emergency services) and non-uniformed (education, health, social housing) areas of our public services. Our programme, which is both educational and work-related, will help you to develop a range of skills that are essential for successful performance in the working life of public service organisations. There are opportunities to take a full-time sandwich placement year between second and final years, and for all students there is a programme of community engagement involving work and volunteering experience in the first and second years. This degree helps you understand how and why this complex and diverse sector is changing, as the Government seeks to â??moderniseâ?? staff working practices and improve the quality of service. Our Public Services courses include the following four pathways: ?BA (Hons) Public Services ?BA (Hons) Public Services (Governance) ?BA (Hons) Public Services (Social Policy) ?BA (Hons) Public Services (Uniformed Services) All of our pathways share a common first and second year, with specialist core and option units in the third or fourth year varying according to your chosen pathway.
