Gemma Rowles (Level 3 Public Service)

LEVEL 3 PUBLIC SERVICE

Ex-Learner Gemma Rowles’ career journey is a huge inspiration, she started off at Kidderminster College, went on to University and is now working as a Communications Officer for West Mercia Police!

Paul Tonks, Programme Leader, had this to say about Gemma:- “Gemma was a joy to teach, always had a smile and never a complaint. She completed her Level 3 Public Service course with overall grades of D*D*D and decided she wanted to go to University.”

STARTED FROM THE BOTTOM

It was not easy for Gemma, she was the first person in her family to go to University and faced a number of challenges to get there. But get there she did! Graduating from Birmingham University with a First Class Honours Degree in Criminology and Psychology!

AND WORKED HER WAY TO THE TOP

Gemma is a first class example of how doing a vocational course can get you the career of your choice in just the same way as completing traditional A levels! Gemma’s experience shows what can be achieved if you put your mind to it!

Gemma stated – whilst at University I gained experience within Category A prisons, Open prisons, refuges and charities helping ex-offenders. These were eye opening experiences and kind of swayed me more to look at Policing roles. As a result I saw a job advertised as a Call Handler for West Mercia Police and applied. I got the position and my current job title is a Communications Officer as I deal with both 101 & 999 calls, whilst dispatching officers over the radio to emergency jobs. I enjoy this role and the job satisfaction it brings.

We’re so proud of Gemma and everything she has done here at #TeamKC
