Policing Profession (CertHE)

The Certificate in Higher Education in the  Policing Profession is a level 4 qualification introducing the core concepts of policing. It has been designed as a building block for students wanting to pursue a career in policing.

On successful completion of the course, students can continue onto the BSc Professional Policing (sometimes referred to as the ‘pre-join’ degree) which provides one of the entry routes into policing. This is a core element of the Policing Education Qualifications Framework (PEQF), and is a professional academic knowledge-based degree structured on the national curriculum for the police constable role.

Course Overview

The Certificate in Higher Education in the  Policing Profession will provide students with a knowledge and understanding of key topics that are critical to effective policing in the 21st century.

The course will develop students in such a way that it will enable them to make sound decisions in even the most trying of circumstances, to consider the application of discretion when dealing with offenders, and to base policing responses upon an evidence-based considered approach.

Career and Progression

The course team has developed very close links with a number of professional organisations in both the public sector and legal services fields. This has allowed for close consultation on the development of course content and the availability of unique work experience opportunities.

For those students who wish to pursue a career in the Police force then the course works closely with South Wales Police, Gwent and Dyfed Powys Police and has developed a volunteer work programme for the students to gain valuable experience and insight into the profession. This will put the students in a more advantageous position to gain employment in their chosen profession.

The course works closely with other Public sector organisations, the combination of both legal and public sector understanding and knowledge would be seen as a benefit to the wider Criminal Justice professions.

The team has developed close relationships with local firms and organisations and developing work experience opportunities that would benefit the students if they chose to extend into further criminal justice study.
