)-- They also visited a number of other attractions and sights such as, Downing Street, Horse Guards, The Ministry of Justice, The Guards Museum and New Scotland Yard.
Steve Hunter, Uniformed Services Lecturer at the Walford Campus says, "It was a long day but the students really enjoyed the trip. Many had never been to London before and none had visited the Houses of Parliament. We have a good working relationship with Owen Paterson MP who ensures that students continue to get the best from their visits to Parliament. It really helps them when learning about Government and Public Service to be able to picture in their minds eye where it all takes place."
The Uniformed Services course is aimed at learners who want to pursue a career in the public services sector with the emphasis on uniformed services, for example the police, the armed forces and the fire service. Subjects studied include: Adventure Activities, Expedition Skills and Fitness and the emphasis is on practical skills, teamwork and fitness. Visits and visiting speakers are important ingredients of this course and students are given the opportunity to participate in a one-week residential study trip to an outward-bound centre.
