Have you always dreamed of fighting fires or battling crime, but found yourself unsure where to begin? This course might just be answer you’ve been searching for!

The Level 3 Public Services (PS) course from Cambridge Open College provides just that, and you can soon learn what you need from it. The course results, on successful completion, in an Endorsed Qualification awarded under Focus Awards’ FQP (Focus on Quality Provision) Scheme.

This innovative course provides you with specialist knowledge of the processes used to successfully recruit public service professionals.

Although the Public Sector constitutes one of the UK’s largest employers, many roles are considered some of the toughest to get into. We give you the confidence to follow your dreams by giving you a ‘sneak peek’ into what you can expect so as to make your application successful. As with so many things in life, knowledge is power.



This fascinating course focuses on providing you with the knowledge and techniques you need to maximise a distinct advantage over other jobseekers, through 12 unique learning Units.

Unlike most commercial companies, Public Service organisations have structured recruitment procedures that leave many applicants in the dark about how they can be successful.

We give you great insight into how PS recruiters make selections, so that you can ‘beat them at their own game’ and adapt your approach to excel in their rigorous recruitment processes.

The course examines the varied opportunities available within the Public Services sector, and also considers other associated aspects you may find interesting. It emphasises the importance of physical fitness and explores other skills required to work in Public Services.

To ensure you have a broad knowledge base, you also learn about government policy, current affairs and essential background information on the workings of the government.



This course is open to all applicants. The only requirement is that candidates have a keen interest in the subject.

The course materials are written in simple everyday language, so a basic level of literacy should enable you to complete the course.

In addition to the comprehensive course materials provided, you receive a study guide to help you get the best from the experience. Of course, you also have your tutor’s expert help and support throughout your studies with us.
