Course summary

About this course

LJMU's Evidence-Informed Practice PgDip is designed for ‘in-service’ criminal justice professionals who want to develop research skills.

  • Develop your research skills enabling you to generate research findings that contribute to the development of criminal justice policy and practice
  • Study over 2 years
  • Learn via LJMU-based study days, online learning and independent study
  • Undertake practice-relevant research to stimulate work-related learning for your employer
  • Follow this hybrid programme developed as a result of the successful delivery of the Police Knowledge Fund Project in partnership with Merseyside Police, the Home Office, College of Policing and HEFCE

The programme will enhance your awareness of, and engagement with, research and (good/best) practice-informed evidence in the development of operational criminal justice practice.

Through the work-based research module you will be supported in constructing individual research projects that have a clear focus on positively impacting your own professional practice. They will outline manifest policy change or enhance a critical understanding of the challenges to creating greater efficiencies and enhanced performance in service provision.

Applicants will need a clear ambition to develop, and commit to the development of, a work-based research project designed to positively impact the operational practice of criminal justice.

Assessment

How learning is monitored on your programme

To cater for the wide-ranging content of our courses and the varied learning preferences of our students, we offer a range of assessment methods on each programme. Assessment techniques vary from module to module to reflect relevant assessment approaches and the key learning points of each topic.

There are no examinations on this programme, instead the PgDip uses a range of coursework-based assessment formats, ranging in length from 1500 to 6000 words.

There are six pieces of coursework to submit and you will be expected to deliver a 20-minute assessed presentation on your work-based research project.

?All assessment tasks will have guidance notes and marking criteria available online and all assessments will be submitted online.

Students can also exit with PGDip or PGCert Awards.
