For the second time students from The Isle of Wight College have won the coveted Public Uniformed Services Challenge.
Competing against 7 other colleges from the South of England, the fourteen Isle of Wight College students on Public Services courses were overall winners of the set tasks:
Terry Gaskin, Course Co-ordinator congratulated the team on winning the PUSC Shield as this contest is considered a major challenge, and said “Public Services courses are for those looking to join the armed forces and public uniformed services (Fire Service, Paramedics, Prison Service etc). Communication skills and personal fitness are of paramount importance for students looking for careers in these areas – against tough opposition our students have proved they are the best in the region. These students have worked hard all year and I congratulate them on their achievement”.
