And Finally – Do You Know Someone Who Could Join the Police on a New Graduate Training Scheme?

Recruitment and training of police officers in Cambridgeshire is changing and a new scheme called the Policing Education Qualifications Framework is being introduced. As part of this, the Constabulary is now running a Police Constable Degree Apprenticeship (PCDA) programme.

Under the PCDA, new entrants will be entered onto a 3-year degree apprenticeship run by Anglia Ruskin University, involving a combination of class learning and on-the-job experience. Tuition fees will be paid by the police and recruits will also be paid a salary whilst they learn.

The recruitment scheme has now been extended until the end of May. More details are on the police web-site at:
