What Courses are worth to have?

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

I was wondering what courses are beneficial to have before applying to forces? 

I know CKP is not required although beneficial and I'm preparing for it now.  

 I hold qualification equivalent to A levels (I'm not British). 

Thanks

Hi Koydek,

Each force has its own recruitment criteria. You should be able to find this on their website.

As for relevant courses / qualifications, theres various courses which would provide you with experience in policing. College level, you could consider BTEC Uniformed Public Service course. Uni level courses, consider FDA Policing or a BA in Criminal Justice.

Rightfully so, some forces realise not all good officers will have qualifications. Life experience os so valuable in the job. Thete is talk of a Policing apprenticeship being developed. This might be of an interest to you, but Im not entirely sure what stage thats at.

Whatever you do, good luck.
