Pembrokeshire College will be able to offer its students real-life experience in its Public Service course thanks to a recent donation from international manufacturer and distributor of premium body armour SafeGuard Clothing. The brand’s bulletproof vest presents students with a unique opportunity for practical experience in learning about protective technology available today that is widely used by the police, military and security operatives.

SafeGuard Armour and Clothing has long been involved in research and development for new materials to enhance the wearability of protective body armour for front line services.

Donations like this from leading and socially-conscious brands like SafeGuard enable Pembrokeshire College to enrich its teaching curriculum with the best practical examples to help its students pursue their career of choice. The brand’s top-level safety vests provide insight into health and safety best practices to highlight the importance of understanding different protection levels, styles and systems for those who plan on working within the Public Services.

Thomas Bowman, speaking on behalf of SafeGuard Armour and Clothing, said: “We believe that all students should have access to protective equipment whilst studying Public Services. We work very hard to implement an applied industry-based model in our manufacturing process; our continuing and strong collaborations with the Police, MOD, Fire Service and Ambulance services have really enhanced the quality of our tactical vests – something that is of great value to students interested in pursuing a career in the field.”

This is yet another donation made by SafeGuard under their campaign to support colleges in enhancing the quality of their Public Service curriculums. The wide variety of bullet and stab proof vests for both covert and overt usage has positioned the brand as one of the most trusted providers of protective clothing that is rapidly expanding across the international market.
