Expert Advice & Workshops from Birmingham Airport Police
Coventry College Public Service students received expert advice and workshops to enable them to understand the application, selection process and possible future employment opportunities within the Police Force.
Amrit Shahi, Support Engagement Officer with Birmingham Airport Police delivered the workshops and said, “I cannot stress enough the importance of promoting police engagement to potential recruits. Over the year I deliver hundreds of workshops and it’s great to get face to face with potential recruits again after a year of Zoom events.
Amrit, stressed the importance of life experiences; fitness of body and mind; plus English and Maths qualifications to enable them to apply.
The visit was arranged by Lizzie Farquhar, Progress Tutor & Lecturer in Sport & Public Service who said, “This was a new external link created this year through the College Safeguarding Team. It is so important to inform the Public Service students of different career options open to them after they complete their Course and the requirements of the job role.
The interactive scenarios put the students in the working world to problem solve, in the way they will have to if they are selected for a Public Service role. I have already planned for their return next year.”
Aspiring Police Officers Igor Gorisiewicz and Ray Buckley said “Amrit was brilliant, we learnt so much from her in the approach we should adapt in dealing with different attitudes and situations. Everything we have learnt with her will set us in good standing for our future careers.”
