Maisy Stevens, Uniformed Public Services
I am studying at The University of Worcester to become a Paramedic. I have a long journey ahead, but I feel my Level 3 Uniformed Public Services course at Bournemouth & Poole College really helped me get to where I am.
The support I received at college was incredible. After struggling at GCSE level, I was worried about joining the college and what to expect. However, the Uniformed Public Services staff really encouraged me to strive to be the best I could be and now I’m studying to save lives!
I really enjoyed the variety to our lessons. In some we learned about citizenship and discipline, whilst in others we were out on the water being taught how to professionally paddle board and kayak. They really held my interest and helped me to get through the course.
I also enjoyed the high intensity and challenge of the course itself. It builds you up to be a better and stronger person and teaches you about life in the public services. You learn to improve your discipline, but also how to be a successful leader of a team.
I would 100% recommend this course to anyone who is thinking about having a life in the services, whether you have made your mind up about which service or not.
I joined the course adamant I wanted to either join the army or the police and now I’m training to be a paramedic! The course opens new doors and pathways that can help you make a final decision.
I wish anyone who completes this course the very best and I hope you succeed in which ever service you decide to join. Maybe I’ll see some of you in the paramedic field!!!
