About the course…

Are you working towards a career in the police force, prison or fire service?

This new and exciting course is equivalent to three A Levels and will help you work towards your career aspirations. In light of the recent changes to entry into the police (now a degree or apprenticeship route only), this qualification will help to prepare you and allow you to fully explore careers in policing.

You will be taught by teaching professionals with years of experience working in the UK police force and will cover units ranging from criminology, law, sociology, global affairs, physical fitness and teamwork development. The course combines a mixture of theoretical and practical learning to prepare you for the application process and to work in this sector.

This course may be of interest to those who have applied for Forensic Science or Uniformed Public Services courses, but specifically wish to prepare for a career in the police force.

Where Policing can take you…

After your time with us, you can progress to university to study a policing degree or take up a policing apprenticeship.

This qualification will also enable you to work towards career roles such as inspector, police constable, prison officer, probation officer and fire fighter.
