Public Services :| - September 9th 2010, 04:53 PM

I'm re-doing my GCSEs in college and I've picked English, Maths, Media and Psychology. I may have to do I.T. instead of Media though as the Maths lessons class with Media >____<

We have compulsory lessons also which are P.S.E., the Welsh Bac (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Welsh_B..._Qualification) and I have to do "Public Services" GCSE as part of my course :| Idk what that even is :/ What is Public Services?

I thought it may have been something like that I just don't know what kind of things we'll do in class

I just googled it and I could only find it as a BTEC.

Here is the spec, it might give you an idea. It looks kind of like Business studies to me.

http://www.edexcel.com/migrationdocu...L2_Issue_5.pdf

Unit titles

Unit 1: Uniformed Public Services Employment
Unit 2: Public Service Skills
Unit 3: Uniformed Public Service Fitness
Unit 4: Citizenship, the Individual and Society
Unit 5: Public Service Workplace Welfare
Unit 6: Adventurous Activities and Teamwork for the Public Services
Unit 7: The Value of Sport and Recreation in the Public Services
Unit 8: Land Navigation by Map and Compass
Unit 9: Law and its Impact on the Individual
Unit 10: Crime and its Effects on Society
Unit 11: Community and Cultural Awareness
Unit 12: Driving and its Relationship to the Public Services
Unit 13: Expedition Skills
Unit 14: Fundamentals of Nautical Studies

Even if this isn't the course you are doing it will probably be similar.

Someone I know is taking public services and his course is all about the army, police, fire service and ambulance service. He has to do some theory and practical things. I think though that it all depends on your college and what exam board it is etc so you will have to check with them
