Public & Uniformed Services

The public and uniformed services industry encompasses many careers, as well as HE opportunities, and at Wirral Met College, we have created two distinct pathways to support your progression, with courses at Level 1, 2 and 3 in each.


Military Preparation pathway for learners who are interested in a career in the Army, Navy, Marines or Royal Air Force.


Protective Services pathway for those interested in the blue light services such as the police, fire service, paramedics, as well as the prison service, and local government roles.


Alongside classroom based lessons at the Oval Campus, these programmes include a strong focus on health and fitness, helping prepare you for selection tests. We offer a wide range of practical outdoor activities, exhibitions and visits to develop important skills such as teamwork and leadership. There are also opportunities for volunteering and a residential trip.

Please complete the below form and one of our friendly Student Advisers will be in touch to discuss your options.



Students can progress into careers in the Armed Forces, Fire, Police or Ambulance/Paramedic services, although some will progress into Higher Education to study on a degree programme.
