Public Services student Jamie Moffat is getting closer to realising his dream of becoming a police officer and has been acknowledged with an award for Cadet of the Year.
During an awards ceremony in March, Jamie was presented with the trophy by PC Andy Frost, Volunteer Police Cadet Co-ordinator for Haringey.
Jamie’s exceptional grasp of police knowledge, team work and dedication helped him secure the award, as well as his commitment to working with Highgate Safer Neighbourhoods teams.
His grandfather had been a detective for New Scotland Yard and inspired Jamie to follow in his footsteps.
The 17-year-old has been with Haringey’s Volunteer Police Cadets since 2005. The cadet programme encourages young people aged 14 to 18 in every London borough to learn about good citizenship, self-discipline, self-confidence and volunteering.
Jamie said: “I’m very passionate about being a cadet. I get a buzz out of helping people and getting involved in the community”.
“It feels good to be recognised for what I do. I thought it wouldn’t be me, but they said my name and my face lit up and I felt really proud.”
When he is not at College studying his NVQ in Public Services, Jamie spends his spare time helping out on initiatives including leaflet drops and giving crime prevention advice.
The College has an outstanding reputation for offering courses in Public Services such as Public Services Introductory Diploma (Level 1), Public Services BTEC First Diploma (Level 2), Public Services BTEC National Certificate/Diploma (Level 3) and Public Services Advanced Diploma (Level 3).
