British Army

A great example set by General Sanders. If any of our students ever want to talk you can contact any of your tutors direct via email or Teams. Don't be afraid to speak up, don't suffer in silence!

Today is #TimeToTalk Day.

General Sir Patrick Sanders has spoken openly about his mental health to encourage others to do the same.

Whether you’re serving, a service leaver or part of our Army family, we want you to help us smash the stigma around mental health.

It’s not just today. Please, talk to each other, listen to each other and be kind to each other.

If you haven’t got anyone you feel you can talk to, start here: https://www.army.mod.uk/people/join-well/managing-stress/ask-for-help/

With 1 1/2 days walking to go, our Public Service students from Wakefield College are still clocking up the miles and have reached our fundraising target! Thanks to all those who have supported us so far and taken part in the walks. We will collate the pictures we have been sent and share them with you over the next few days.

Support Public Services at Wakefield College this Christmas and make a donation.

This year our Public Service staff and students have signed up to the Walking Home For Christmas campaign which we will be completing next week before the Christmas break.

By taking part in the #WalkingHomeForChristmas campaign, we're giving hope to ex-military and their families who are struggling this Christmas by supporting programmes ran by Walking With The Wounded Charity which tackle key issues such as mental health and unemployment, something which is all the more prevalent this year due to Covid-19.

All of our public service groups will be out walking next week to support this cause. If you are in a position to support our students please give what you can, every penny helps!

Great to see a number of our Public Service Students selected for a work placement with West Yorkshire Fire & Rescue! Well done guys great effort!!

Chris Shaw, District Support Officer invited Work Placement Team staff and students from Level 3 Public Services to Ossett Fire Station for an induction session in preparation for their work experience, week commencing 1st April. Students were measured for their kit, shown some of the equipment on site and met with other members of the station crew. This is the first time that WYFS have offered work experience and is hopefully the start of a long term relationship, giving students an insight into the 21st century Fire Service.
