Course summary

This Police Constable Degree Apprenticeship (PCDA) is an academic and professional programme jointly delivered by officers from Northumbria Police and academic staff from across Northumbria University. This programme is for officers of Northumbria Police only.

The programme has been designed and developed to meet the requirements of the College of Policing (CoP), the professional body for all those working in the Police Service, for the professional education of new entrants into policing via a newly-established police constable apprenticeship entry route.

The core curriculum has been designed by the CoP to be professionally transformative and to reflect the contemporary areas of knowledge, skills, behaviours, and professional practice essential to the 21st century police constable role. These include (but are not limited to):

evidence-based policing
decision making and discretion
criminology and crime prevention
pro-active approaches to vulnerability
risk and public protection
modern policing trends such as digital policing

Successful completion of all three years of the programme, including completion of the integrated End Point Assessment, will result in the achievement of full competency to operate safely and lawfully as a Police Constable in the workplace (public arena) and achieving a Degree in Professional Policing Practice.

Apprenticeship Standard
