Future police officers enjoy work experience week

Devon & Cornwall Police recently held a fantastic Work Experience Week at Callywith for 30 Year 12 students from across Cornwall including Callywith Level 3 Protective Services Diploma students.

The week compromised of several presentations, practical learning opportunities, and guest speakers covering the many different aspects of policing in the modern world. Students learnt about career opportunities within policing, as well as the practical and detailed workings of the job.

Students were rewarded with an amazing insight as to whether policing is the career for them. First year Protective Services student Rosa Dubare said: “It was very interesting to see all the different roles and careers you could undertake in the police and how they all come together to work as a big team. My favourite part of the week was learning self-defence skills and how to restrain people.”

​Callywith College will also be hosting the Devon & Cornwall Police Work Experience Week for year 10 students in July.
