Uniformed Public Services Students visit London

As part of the Uniformed Public Services course, a party of first year Uniformed Public Services students went on a fact finding trip to London.

Their first stop was at the Houses of Parliament, the home of the House of Commons and the House of Lords which sits at the heart of political life and government in the UK.  Next the students met at the Cenotaph to give the students a time of reflection and to remember those who had given their lives in previous conflicts.

Later the visit continued on to the recently opened National Army Museum and the Imperial War Museum.  This gave the students the opportunity to look at the exhibits of the modern soldier and compare them to historical exhibits of years gone past. The students were also deeply moved by the Holocaust displays in the Imperial War Museum.

Uniformed Public Services Lecturer Joe Mitchell said, ‘These visits to London provide a brilliant insight for the students, giving them the opportunity to learn and consider their future career in public services.  The feedback from the students has been great, we hope that the visits we take over the 2 years will help them to give an informed choice on how to achieve their ambitions.’
