This launch focuses on recruiting for non-degree holders and runs for two weeks closing on Monday, 23 March.
Policing in the 21st Century is facing new professional challenges and the communities served by the police are increasingly diverse and complex, with differing needs and priorities.
The Police Constable Degree Apprenticeship (PCDA) is an exciting new route open to those wishing to have a career in policing. The PCDA is a three-year apprenticeship programme with both on and off the job learning. All successful recruits will be employed as a police officer from day one, gaining valuable experience of the role alongside studying for a degree, whilst being paid a salary. Individuals will not be charged any tuition fees – so there is no need for student loans.
Upon successful completion of the programme and probationary period, individuals will achieve a Degree in Professional Policing Practice. The starting salary is £22,380 per annum (including South East Allowance of £1,500).
Depending upon vacancies available in force there is the opportunity to progress through the ranks and/or specialise in an area of policing.
