About the role:
ARU are delighted to be working with The Metropolitan Police and the Seven Police Forces in the Eastern Region – Essex, Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire, Kent, Norfolk and Suffolk – to train the Police Officers of the future. We will be offering the new Police Education Qualification Framework (PEQF) Police Constable Degree Apprenticeship (PCDA) and the Degree Holder Entry Program (DHEP) developed by the College of Policing.
As a result we have new job opportunities, starting in the coming months and we are excited to be offering these to you. This is a chance to be involved in shaping the Police Officers of the future and get involved in an industry leading program.
The PEQF aims to further professionalise policing as a career, by both recognising and raising educational standards, and ARU has been selected by the Seven Force Strategic Collaboration Programme to provide the educational training for two new entry routes into the profession.
New Police Constables will enrol on a three-year Police Constable Degree Apprenticeship, which combines a degree programme with on-the-job training, while a two-year Degree Holder Entry Programme will be available for new recruits who already have a degree.
In this round, we're looking for Instructors to deliver police education (lecturers, seminars, tutorials, etc.) and support the Senior and Principal Instructors with programme review and development.
This post will be located at Police Force sites in Hertfordshire.
You will work with police training colleagues at these locations and, initially, you will be responsible for a single cohort of student police officers studying on the PCDA / DHEP.
Instructor - £37,099 - £42,978 p.a. pro rata
Our Instructors will need the minimum of a degree or equivalent professional experience, and a demonstrable willingness to work towards a higher qualification.
