Professional Policing - York St John University

From 2020 as a new recruit in policing, you will be required to hold a professional qualification in policing to be confirmed as a Police Constable in England and Wales. Our Degree in Professional Policing BA (Hons) delivered under licence, will satisfy the academic requirements of the pre-join programme from the College of Policing - the professional body for policing in England and Wales. This programme's modules meet the requirements of the National Policing Curriculum and cover the following key areas: response policing, information and intelligence, policing communities, policing the roads, and conducting investigations. Within these modules there are general learning and development areas applicable across a range of professional contexts: understanding the Police Constable role, valuing difference and inclusion, maintaining professional standards, evidence-based policing, problem solving, research methods and skills, decision-making and discretion and communication skills. A key component of the programme is that students are encouraged and supported to work with vulnerable people or communities across a diverse range of groups, or to volunteer with a police force. You will have the chance to focus your studies on an area of policing you are particularly interested in as part of your final year. Much of the delivery and assessment of the programme will be based around developing skills that will be directly related to the role of a police officer.
