Future Choices students learn about job roles within Surrey Police Force
Future Choices is designed to be a solid foundation for young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) as they transition to work and independent living.
Future Choices students were invited to Surrey Police HQ at Mount Browne in Guildford. The objective of the day was to find out about job opportunities and to learn about the career progression available within the force.
A group of 30 young adults were given a presentation from police officers on the various roles available within the police force including civilian jobs and volunteering. Everyone found the presentations really insightful, and learnt about the opportunities that were available to them. The group asked numerous questions about how they could get involved and start a career which really impressed the police officers giving the presentation.
The day moved on to finding out about dog training and meeting the trainee police dog, trying on police uniforms, and sitting in police vehicles.
The day had a great impact on the group. Not only did they find it interesting and rewarding but it has helped them network with the police force and add to their own ideas of a career moving forward.
Sergeant Chris Gleason said he was very impressed with everyone and looked forward to our next visit.
One of the young adults said:
“I really enjoyed the Police HQ visit, I got to see a police puppy, sit in a police car and van and I got to use the police siren too”
