Professional body armour donated to Public Services

27 November 2018

Ashton Sixth Form College has received a body armour donation set to boost understanding of protection for Public Service personnel. This hands-on experience for students enrolled in the course will give them an advantage in their chosen field as it offers them vital practical experience with the kinds of equipment they are likely to go on to use in their careers.

SafeGuard Clothing Communications Manager Thomas Bowman said, 

"We are pleased to partner with Ashton Sixth Form College and work towards making their Public Service course more focused on the actual experience of law enforcement personnel. The donation of one of our premium bullet proof vests aims to enhance the learning experience of students." 

As part of the brand's commitment to assist with the development of Public Service courses, Ashton Sixth Form College is the latest institution to receive one of SafeGuard's premium bulletproof vests. This will allow for demonstrations in class to take place on the importance of safety and protecting the lives of law enforcement and military operatives.

Such partnerships are greatly beneficial to students as they provide access to an industry leader's expertise and technological advancements, enriching the learning experience. The use of SafeGuard's bullet proof vest in Ashton Sixth Form College’s Public Service course establishes the working mechanics behind staying safe in the line of work that involves daily risks.

Providing samples of bulletproof vests helps students understand how protection against knives and guns actually works and gives them a unique advantage that will benefit them later in their careers. Progressive learning experiences advance student knowledge and skills while also creating vital opportunities for role play that can only enhance the quality of the education at Ashton Sixth Form College.
