Degree apprenticeship for police constables launches

Posted on 20 Jun 2017

The new degree apprenticeship will be ‘an education founded on professional practice’, according to the College of Policing

The curriculum for the new police degree apprenticeship has been published.

The police constable degree apprenticeship programme was revealed last week by the College of Policing, and is designed to provide the next generation of police officers with the skills required of a modern constable.

According to the College of Policing, the degree apprenticeship curriculum provides a “comprehensive, modern and up-to-date coverage of areas of knowledge, skills and professional approaches that have been identified as critical to…21st century policing”.

Alongside traditional areas of policing, such as public protection, criminology and crime prevention, the course will feature up-to-date areas of modern policing such as digital policing. The course will last up to three years and successful apprentices will complete a degree in professional policing practice.
