Kyle Barnett, Fire Fighter for Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service, returned to Ashton Sixth Form College to volunteer with the Sport and Public Services department. Kyle began a Level 2 course in Public Services at Ashton Sixth Form College in 2012. Following the successful completion of this, Kyle then went on to progress to the Level 3 Public Services course. During his final year at the college, Kyle applied to join the Fire Brigade. He passed the application process and fitness tests required and, following his Level 3 course in Public Services, went straight in to employment. Public Services courses prepare students for a career in the public sector. Developing the skills required in the sector and gaining a broad knowledge of government, policies, crime and society, prepare students to excel after college.
