Lecturer in Policing (Police Premises)
Application closing date
Grade: H (£37,467 - £43,434)
Several opportunities have arisen for enthusiastic and suitably qualified
candidates to join the Policing Team at UCLan, located within the School of
Justice. Successful candidates could be responsible for the preparation and
delivery of engaging, challenging and transformative teaching across the
undergraduate and postgraduate programmes offered by the school, however we
are initially seeking candidates to take teaching roles within UCLan's
delivery of the Police Education and Qualifications Framework (PEQF).
Our PEQF programmes are at the forefront of the developing portfolio of police
education licensed by the College of Policing, and as a Lecturer you will be
required to act as module leader for several modules, working in partnership
with colleagues from other University's or policing organisations, in the
shared delivery of the Police Constable Degree Apprenticeship (PCDA) and
Degree Holder Entry Programmes (DHEP) to new student Police Officers in
North West Police Forces.
As this role will require access to police premises and is likely to require
engagement with police officers and staff the successful candidate will need
to undertake any applicable police vetting procedures, including but not
limited to the Non-Police Personnel Vetting (NPPV) process, and appointment
to the post is subject to successful completion of such processes.
You will be expected to promote the delivery of an excellent student
experience and have the flexibility to deliver teaching at the UCLan main
Preston Campus, the Burnley Campus, the University of Salford campus, and in
other regional Police Constabularies, as required. You will be expected to be
able to deliver teaching in any of those locations and online.
We require you to demonstrate teaching or training experience and relevant
substantial professional policing experience or other relevant associated
profession and/or a proven track record in policing related research.
You will need to be Educated to Honours degree level with a higher degree,
normally at Doctoral level, in an appropriate or related discipline.
Candidates with commensurate professional experience (e.g. recognised for
leading innovations or transformations in local policing, serious, organised,
and complex crime, digital/cyber-crime or terrorism) will be considered. An
experience of teaching in a Higher Education environment will be an additional
benefit as would a formal teaching qualification or registered Fellow of the
Higher Education Academy. (Advance HE)
You will also evidence a flexible and innovative approach to teaching and
learning and research with an ability to work on your own initiative as well
as being part of team. You should also be IT literate with knowledge of
Microsoft PowerPoint and other packages.
The role will require the flexibility to work occasional evenings.
