Since being selected as one of the Met Police’s learning partners in 2019, Babcock, working with a consortium of four London based universities – Anglia Ruskin University, Brunel University London, University of East London and University of West London – has worked with the Met Police to develop its new recruit programmes.
These new training programmes are based on the National Police Curriculum, providing new recruits with the knowledge and skills police officers demonstrate every day. The programmes are independently accredited, more formally recognising policing as a profession, and providing the opportunity to ‘earn while you learn’.
The Police Constable Degree Apprenticeship (PCDA) will award recruits a BSc (hons) degree in Professional Policing Practice upon successfully completing all elements of the programme. The Degree-Holders Entry Programme (DHEP), which also includes a detective route, is for those already holding a degree, and will see them gain a Graduate Diploma in Policing on completion.
John Davies, Babcock’s CEO Land said:
“The successful mobilisation of this new training programme is a result of the excellent collaboration between the Met, our university partners and Babcock. We are proud of the role we play in preparing the next generation of police officers.”
