Saffron Stead

  • Student Police Officer, Greater Manchester Police
  • Uniformed Public Services

Saffron had dreamed of being in the police since she was a child. This dream is now about to become a reality after she studied Uniformed Public Services at Hopwood.

The course was a pleasant surprise for Saffron, who admits that she didn’t enjoy education before enrolling at the college. However, a combination of supportive tutors, friendly classmates and amazing opportunities all changed this for her.

Just some of the activities that she got to take part in include riot training, kayaking, log runs and a tour of the Parliament.

The course wasn’t just fun, but was also the perfect way to move her towards her dream job. She’s now student officer with GMP and is looking forward to soon policing the streets and keeping the community safe.

“Each day was something to look forward to. I hated education whilst in school, but Hopwood changed that for me and I enjoyed it so much. My course helped me to achieve my dream career – and yours can too!”
