Professional Policing with Foundation Year - York St John University

The Foundation Year offers you the opportunity to grow in confidence in academic study through the development of key skills and the exploration of diverse themes and cutting-edge developments in a large array of subject areas in Social Sciences and other Schools. This programme's modules follow the National Policing Curriculum covering the following areas; response policing, information and intelligence, policing communities, policing the roads, conducting investigations, 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. Students will be encouraged to gain experience through working with vulnerable people across a diverse range of groups in preparation for an application to the police service. 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 through the Evidence-based Policing project. The delivery and assessment of the programme will be based around developing skills that are directly related to the role of a police officer. Our Degree in Professional Policing programme is specifically designed for people wishing to join the police service in England and Wales. Before applying we advise that you check your eligibility to become a police constable. If you are unlikely to meet the required criteria to apply to the Police Service then this course will not be appropriate for you, visit the College of Policing website to find out more about entry requirements. Successful completion of the programme does not guarantee a position as a police constable. All persons wishing to join the police service will have to go through the application process, the College of Policing’s national assessment centre and meet any other requirements set by individual police forces.
