The University of West London (UWL) is ranked the best modern university (non-specialist) in London in the Complete University Guide 2023.

We were also named University of the Year for Student Experience and Teaching Quality in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2023, being described by the editor as “regularly among the top-performing universities” and proving that “it is possible for a London-based institution to achieve outstanding levels of student satisfaction beyond other universities”.

University status awarded in or after 1992

The School

This is an exciting opportunity to join one of the leading police education institutions in the UK. Working with Babcock Training Ltd and three other universities, UWL is helping shape the future of the Metropolitan Police Service through delivery of three programmes under the Police Education Quality Framework (PEQF): the police constable degree apprenticeship, the degree holder entry programme (graduate diploma) uniform and the degree holder entry programme detective.

UWL's Institute for Policing Studies was formed in November 2021 to bring together this collaboration, alongside the university's own policing degree and masters courses. The Institute has gone from strength to strength and now has over 1,500 students.

The Role

Following Dr Mark Roycroft's imminent departure to head up a new department at the University of Hertfordshire, and while we are looking to fill the role permanently, we are now seeking a Head of the Institute for Policing Studies.

The role will report into the Associate Pro Vice-Chancellor, Chief Information Officer and Director of Digital Futures and will, under his supervision, lead and manage the Institute, its staff, delivery of policing education and fulfilment of the contract the University has with Babcock Training Limited.

The postholder will line manage other academic staff within the Institute, the administrative team, HPLs and work closely with the PEQF Contract Manager, the Institute/School/College Academic Manager and the relevant HR Partner and Finance Manager when needed.

For this role you must be able to demonstrate you meet the skills, experience and competencies set out in the Person Specification.

To discuss the role informally, please contact Adrian Ellison, the Associate Pro Vice-Chancellor, Chief Information Officer and Director of Digital Futures, by contacting [email protected].
