Lecturer in Policing Practice - U010948

Updated: 9 months ago

At the University of South Wales (USW) our provision for police education and training is growing. Earlier this year, USW became the first university in the UK to have its training for graduate police constables validated through the College of Policing for the delivery of the Degree Holder Entry Programme (DHEP). USW was also one of the first universities to validate the under graduate Police Constable Degree Apprenticeship (PCDA) programme. These programmes are delivered off-campus within the relevant police force area, through blended learning, in collaboration with one of our partner forces. Currently these forces are Dyfed Powys, Gloucester, Wiltshire, Devon & Cornwall, and Dorset Police. Student officers studying for these qualifications will be undertaking either the BSc (Hons) Professional Policing Practice (the PCDA), or the Graduate Diploma in Professional Policing Practice (the DHEP), and will be newly recruited full time police constables. The University is also a College of Policing approved centre to deliver the on-campus full time pre-join degree called the BSc (Hons) Professional Policing.

The successes enjoyed at USW in delivering quality police education and training for the last 15 years has led to this recent portfolio expansion; this has created opportunities for those with the appropriate qualifications, skills, experience and motivation who wish to join the University at this exciting time.

This position relates to the development and provision of the off-campus policing practice courses within DEVON & CORNWALL, and DORSET POLICE. As such, you will be based within the training facilities of Devon & Cornwall Police, in the South West of England, with occasional resilience cover required at Dorset Police training facilities. The post holder will also be required to travel to one or more of our other partner forces from time to time, as well as undertake a short induction period based at the University of South Wales and occasional travel to USW thereafter. Due to the requirement to work from police premises, forces may also require applicants to undertake additional police vetting.

The terms and conditions of the post (including grade and salary) will be those of the University of South Wales.
