What I did on my work experience
You get so much practical and work-related experience on the course. I’ve had a day’s training with Gloucester Police, plus we have people from all the public services in to talk about their jobs so we can get an insight into them. We had the chance to get inside an RAF Puma helicopter, took part in training and a fitness session with the Royal Marines, underwent police riot and crowd control training at Cheltenham Racecourse and even experienced an emergency planning exercise for a chemical and biological attack at a sporting event. There’s a strong practical side to the course as well as the theory.
I want to go into the police, so after Hartpury, I plan to go to university to study criminology.
