11.07.2016

Lewis Mason, BA Public Service student, who graduated today from UWTSD Swansea, has dedicated over 1,000 hours of his time doing voluntary work. 

Lewis started UWTSD as a HND (Higher National Diploma) student in 2013, which he passed in 2015 and then proceeded onto the third year degree.

Bronwen Williams, Public Services Coordinator said:  “We have seen Lewis grow in confidence and maturity during his time at University. Lewis has thrown himself into all aspects of University life, being class rep and being a volunteer for both the METPOL and the Mid and West Wales Fire Service on the University’s METFIRE volunteer scheme.

“Lewis has helped run a number of Phoenix courses, working with disadvantaged and vulnerable young people. Lewis is also a volunteer for St Johns Ambulance. In the three years Lewis has been with UWTSD he has completed over 1,000 hours of voluntary work which is an astonishing achievement.

“Lewis has been an inspiring student, not many young people would give up so much of their free time to help their community. As a result of his hard work and commitment, Lewis has secured a job with Cardiff Prison as an OSG. We are very proud of Lewis and all that he has achieved with us at UWTSD. He is an excellent example of an individual who gave his all and who has really excelled.”

The Public Services degree provides a vocational education to prepare the graduate for a career in the Public Services professions. The programme meets the needs of aspiring uniformed public service officers, support and administrative professionals and equips students with the knowledge and skills for successful employment in public services professions.
