Salary: £36,334 to £43,804 plus an allowance of £2,148 (Zone 1) or £1,043 (Zone 2) depending on Location. You will receive £36,334 the band minimum. Progress to the band maximum of £36,334 will be via incremental progression.
This role will form part of a new team in Professionalism, the Policing Education Qualifications Framework (PEQF) Centre for Initial Recruit Learning (CIRL), which will facilitate the relationship with academic partners, manage the operational delivery of student police officer learning, manage the contracts and finances, and ensure that student police officer learning evolves with the changing needs of the organisation. The two Initial Education Course Lead roles will play a vital role in the day-to-day management and oversight of all student police officer learning programmes.
This role will require the post holder to manage one or more of the individual student policer officer pathways (Police Constable Degree Apprenticeship, Degree-Holder Entry Programme, Police Now and Initial Police Learning Development Programme) to ensure they are being delivered in a consistent and effective way across the collaboration. This includes managing centralised activities, such as induction, annual monitoring, curriculum and programme updates and maintenance, as well as customer queries and complaints, alongside supporting the CIRL’s management team. The post holder will need to engage with and manage relationships with key internal stakeholders in the Met (e.g. Basic Command Units (BCUs), Met Learning & Development (L&D)) and external stakeholders (e.g. education providers).
Decisions on how the responsibilities for the different pathways will be split across the two roles will be made based on the experience of those appointed to the roles.
Background to the Centre of Initial Recruit Learning
Working as part of the newly formed Centre for Initial Recruit Learning (CIRL), within the Met’s Professionalism Operational Command Unit, you will play a crucial role in ensuring that our police constable recruits receive the best possible training to prepare them for the unique challenges of policing London.
It is a particularly exciting time to join the CIRL team as we look to welcome the first intakes of recruits into the Met under the new Police Constable Degree Apprenticeship (PCDA) and Degree Holder Entry Programmes (DHEP) from September 2020.
We are proud to be able to offer these new entry pathways, which form part of a national Police Education Qualification Framework (PEQF), to enable recruits to gain a degree level qualification (awarded through one of our London university partners) upon completion of their initial learning, in formal recognition of policing as a profession. These pathways will sit alongside our established Initial Police Learning and Development Programme (IPLDP) which has been updated to closely mirror PCDA.
The CIRL Team will ensure that across all pathways, student police officers are fully supported to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to deliver the best possible service to London working in partnership with the Met’s learning delivery partners and internal stakeholders. It will manage the operational delivery of high quality recruit learning against the required standards, ensure the learning model is kept up to date and that value for money is achieved.
