Thanks bro
Btw, the other person was taking the piss, you genuinely don't need any qualifications. You apply through a branch and you'd have sit written tests and physical ones, along with an interview.

He asked what qualifications you NEEDED. A public service btec is useless and no employer will insist on you having it.

Do whichever you prefer, I doubt it would make a huge difference if the force doesn't require qualifications in the first place. I guess carry on with media as a back up, since Level 3 > Level 2

What would be the point of being an officer then, when you could be a post-doctorate earning 33k?
