A NEW diploma for teenagers who want to work in public service has been announced in London’s East End today, three years before it goes nationwide.
Tower Hamlets is one of first 66 areas around the country to operate the Public Services diploma for wannabe police dog handlers, firefighters, museum administrators or housing officers.
It gives youngsters an insight into jobs in public service and equips them with skills for university, college or workplace.
The Diploma is available in Tower Hamlets from September and is being rolled out across the country in 2013.
“It is exactly what the public sector has been crying out for,” said Skills for Justice organisation’s Lis Martin.

The Diploma, created by her organisation together with Tower Hamlets Education Business Partnership, is part of the Government’s education reforms for ages 14 to 19, the biggest shake up since the National Curriculum.
