In Uniformed Public Services, discipline and teamwork are the main values. The tutors maintain these values throughout the course and through various adventurous activities such as expeditions, which are amazing, and fitness competitions. I’ve learned social and life skills that will help in the future. The facilities such as the gym and sports equipment are very good and the tutors really know what they are talking about. Whatever you are looking to do, Uxbridge College has all the appropriate facilities and support you need.
