Public Services students had the opportunity to learn about life in the Police Force from former student and Police Officer Marie Crossland.

I’m really excited to be back here and inspiring the next generation of public services students.

Marie talked about her career to date followed by a question and answer session. Students were given an insight into the daily life of a Police Officer as well as receiving expert career advice and guidance on job opportunities, interviews and requirements within the police force.

Marie, who studied Uniformed Public Services at the college before going on to become a Special Constable, fulfilled her dream of progressing to be a Police Officer for West Yorkshire. She said: “I’m really excited to be back here and inspiring the next generation of public services students. The students have similar ambitions and mind sets as I did when I was 16 years old. For me, this is where it all started. I always knew that I wanted to work in the police force and the knowledge I gained whilst at college set the foundations to get where I am today.”

Joseph Campbell, Public Services tutor, added: “It’s nice to have our past students back in college talking to us about their careers. It has been inspirational for our current cohort of learners and has given them invaluable information about their possible future career choices.”
