About

Professional Policing (Hons) at Coventry University is a new entry route into the police force and has been designed to prepare new recruits to meet the demands of 21st century policing.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

Professional Policing (Hons) at Coventry University  meets the new standards set by the College of Policing’s Policing Education Qualification Framework (PEQF). Aspects of this programme have been used by police forces throughout England and Wales as part of the newly-categorised modes of entry into the policing profession.

The pre-join route will allow you to study for a degree and then apply to a force and follow a shorter on-the-job training programme to become a police constable or a special constable. The degree is designed so that you will undertake the learning as set out by the PEQF, attain a BA (Hons) Professional Policing and be equipped with the requisite skills and knowledge to be able to apply to the Police Force to become a police constable. 

Career:

After successful completion of this degree, graduates will be equipped with the requisite skills and knowledge to be in a position to apply to the police force to become a Police Constable. Graduates must apply to their chosen police force within 5 years of their graduation date.

After graduating, you will then be able to apply to become a Police Constable. Completion of the Pre-join Policing degree does not guarantee recruitment as a trainee police constable, but is one of the three entry routes into the policing profession as of 2020.

It is important to note that for progression into a career in the police force, a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check will be carried out. Please note that any previous convictions may have an impact on whether you can join the police force.
