Hana is on course to a career in the police
19 year old Hana Rafiq’s experiences on her Level 3 Diploma for Entry to the Uniformed Services has given her the skills, knowledge and insight into what she needs to do to progress in her dream career as a police officer.
Hana says: “Studying at The Manchester College has given me the skills and experience to help me in my future career. I’ve met public service professionals from the police, firefighters and prison wardens and gained an insight into working in the service.”
As part of her course Hana completed a voluntary work placement with the Salvation Army. She enjoyed her time on the placement and has seen the benefits of working there in helping her develop wider skills beyond her course.
Hana has achieved Distinction* and is looking to start a degree in Criminology at Manchester Metropolitan University in September.
Hana added: “My long-term career aspirations are to become a police officer since I’ve always been passionate about it since I was young. Studying on the public service course has helped me to gain some insight into the career and also learn about other different services too. I hope to take this knowledge onwards, so I can hopefully become a police officer.
I’ve had a great time at the College meeting friends and getting along with the tutors. They are really helpful and there to help people have the best learning experience possible. What I appreciate about the College is that they always support you and do everything in their power to ensure that you receive the greatest grade possible while also making the course more enjoyable for you.”
