The School of Criminology & Criminal Justice is the largest criminology department in the UK with an established presence in undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral education, complemented by a successful applied criminology research profile. The University has been awarded Gold within the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF). The University is aiming to be the top modern University and the Institute will make a significant contribution towards achieving this aim.

As part of a national consortium of Higher Education providers, we have secured the tender to provide a Police Constable Degree Apprenticeship and Degree Holder Entry Programme for newly recruited Police Constables in Sussex Police, Hampshire Constabulary and Surrey Police.  The final assessment within the Degree Apprenticeship is the End Point Assessment - this requires the independent assessment of whether a student officer has met the skills, knowledge and behaviours contained within the relevant apprenticeship standard.  This is assessed in line with the End Point Assessment Plan for Police Constables.  In order to support the assessment of final year PCDA students across the Police Education Consortium we are looking to appoint a dedicated Independent Assessor. 

All posts will be based at the University of Portsmouth with some travel to campus required.

This role requires access to police premises and engagement with police officers and staff. As such we will require the successful candidate to undertake the ‘Non Police Person Personnel Vetting’ (NPPV) process.

If you wish to discuss this further, in the first instance, please contact Dr Julian Parker-McLeod on or on Tel. 023 9284 3795. 

Alternatively contact Claudia Cox on or on Tel. 023 9284 3944.

The University of Portsmouth believes this role may be eligible for sponsorship with UKVI under the Skilled Worker Route visa. Please familiarise yourself with the requirements set out before applying for this role. If you are unable to meet the requirements for sponsorship you will need to confirm details of an alternative visa to work in the UK when applying for this role.
