Find out more about the TEF.

This course offers the opportunity to understand the legal structure governing all aspects of our lives today alongside an understanding of the public services and its organisational management. The course allows for development of leadership and management and understanding of corporate responsibility and strategic planning in the public sector. Public services and the third sector are the largest employers within Britain, which results in an increasing demand for graduate employment within these areas and this programme is relevant to those who will seek employment within the public service professions and follow careers such as police officers. The combination of both subjects allows for a greater depth of knowledge and the workings of Public Sector organisations which would prove invaluable for those seeking a fast track career into professions such as the police force.
