  • About the role:

    ARU are delighted to be working with The Metropolitan Police and the Seven Police Forces in the Eastern Region – Essex, Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire, Kent, Norfolk and Suffolk – to train the Police Officers of the future. We will be offering the new Police Education Qualification Framework (PEQF) programmes developed by the College of Policing.

    The PEQF aims to further professionalise policing as a career, by both recognising and raising educational standards, and ARU has been selected by the Seven Force Strategic Collaboration Programme to provide the educational training for two new entry routes into the profession.

    New Police Constables will enrol on a three-year Police Constable Degree Apprenticeship, which combines a degree programme with on-the-job training, while a two-year Degree Holder Entry Programme will be available for new recruits who already have a degree.

    Principal Instructor £51,000 - £62,000 p.a.

    We're looking for a Principal Instructor to provide leadership in the delivery and the continuous improvement of the Degree Holder Entry Programme (DHEP) and Police Constable Degree Apprenticeship (PCDA) programmes for Kent Police and Essex Police.

    The ability to travel between police establishments is required for roles within the Seven Forces programme.

    Excited and motivated candidates should contact Dr Craig McCann, Deputy Head of Police Education (Academic) at craig.mccann1@aru.ac.uk for an informal discussion.
