I served 7 years with Thames Valley police, finishing as an AFO and Search Team leader, currently I am serving with a non UK service at moment but returning to UK in 2013 for family reasons, so I've 15 years of experience, and was officially told by their HR people, no A levels, not eligible. 15 Years experience or not!!
TVP are using the guidelines as Gospel, there is no grey areas or common sense used in recruitment any more, if all services take up this education policy, they will miss out on some good candidates in my view.

They gave me the runaround,at the time.
So I moved my application to the Met.
I'm surprised they wouldn't even consider you.
Not even considering people without A levels, is a strange way of recruiting.
It just means, they are removing so many possible officers.

Anyway, best of luck to all who applied.

I think about 50% (at least) of our last few intakes (where I work) have a degree - so I suspect that before long we'll also be saying we want a minimum of A levels for new recruits.

Having a degree, is not a measure of common sense.
