FE Public Services

I’ve really enjoyed doing units like Police Powers, and all the trips and visits we’ve done. The course has given me so much direction and self-confidence. When I started I had no qualifications and didn’t know what to do with my life, but I’m finishing with 3 Distinction stars, and I’m starting a law degree at the University of Law in September.”
