I'm in year 12 studying A levels French, German and Russian.
I don't want to go to uni.
I'm from Brum if this makes a difference 😝
Thanks🌻🌻

Hey

You can study Public Services which would give you a huge insight into policing and other career goals such as joining an army or London fire brigade.

You can get experience into policing but not without studying the course first. You will require full subject knowledge as well as months of training as a VPC(Volunteer Police Cadet)

Thanks🌻🌻
Applying for policing roles is about character building; it is currently less about education but more about experience. It's for this reason people with a background in areas such as the armed forces or security have an advantage.

Under <25s are unlikely to compete well in the application process, but the Special Constable role would be ideal in giving young people the opportunity to build policing experience. Special Constables are volunteer roles, and usually have strong ties with universities (they're often at Freshers Fates, etc). Random link about them: http://content.met.police.uk/Site/specialconstables

There are also graduate schemes available. Checking your local police's website could be a good start for more info.
