The need for discipline in the Public Services is hugely important.
The major way in which discipline is instilled into workers in public service jobs is via effective training.
Fire service training manual (1994) ‘The Fire Service Training Manual, together with the Manual of Firemanship, provides the foundation necessary for members of the service to learn, or teach, the essential core of knowledge and techniques. The knowledge must be reinforced and techniques regularly rehearsed to develop the skill and expertise necessary for firefighters to demonstrate and maintain professional competence.’
