National Graduate Leadership Programme
About the programme
Our National Graduate Leadership Programme is designed to develop your resilience, leadership and problem-solving abilities to equip you with the skills and knowledge required as a neighbourhood police officer. We will teach you everything you need to know about working with communities and local partners, to prevent crime, lead investigations, and proactively identify neighbourhood issues.
Your salary is paid from day one when you start our training academy. You will then spend two years embedded in a neighbourhood. This will give you the opportunity to become a visible leader in the community, engage with partners to support and safeguard the vulnerable and prevent those at risk of offending. Our programme prepares you to make a positive change and stop crime before it happens. There is no greater feeling than seeing the work you do impact someone’s life for the better.
We are looking for talented graduates from all degree disciplines. You don’t need any previous policing knowledge or experience to be successful in our programme.
For your ambitions, career goals, promotions. For every brave new idea and the lives you’ll change. Become a neighbourhood police officer.
Training and development
Our award-winning training sets the foundation for a successful and transformative career in policing. Throughout the academy, you’ll have access to a performance and development coach who will support you to navigate a new career and maximise your potential. You'll also have the opportunity to apply for a secondment, which is a unique opportunity to develop skills and gain valuable experience working with external partners.
Once you successfully complete the programme, you will be a fully warranted neighbourhood police officer with a permanent role in policing. You’ll also join our alumni network and have full access to our team, who are there to support your career in policing.
Many of our graduates have gone on to get promoted or taken the opportunity to move laterally into the wide variety of departments that are on offer in policing. Such as becoming a detective, joining Counter Terrorism teams, or working on policing priorities such as Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG).
