Communication skills, a desire to learn and work as a team
The role of an officer is not all about catching criminals but talking to people. Taking the time to understand someone, earn their trust, respect and build positive relationships – those are the skills you need to become a successful officer.
In addition to the standard PC eligibility criteria, the following academic criteria applies for all candidates wishing to undertake the PCDA route:
You must hold a level 2 qualification in English Language at a GCSE grade C/4 or above or grades 9-4/A*-C or equivalent. If you do not have this qualification, we will also consider an English Language equivalent overseas qualification
You must also hold, or be working towards, one of the following:
64 UCAS points within the meaning of section 3 of the Education and Skills Act 2008 (visit UCAS tariff calculator)
12 months service as a Special Constable having achieved independent patrol status
12 months service as a Community Support Officer having passed probationary period
An academic or vocational qualification gained outside England and Wales which is considered by the UK National Recognition Information Centre to be equivalent to 64 UCAS points
Applicants working towards these criteria will not be able to take up appointment until they are able to evidence successful completion.
Where you do not meet this criteria, we will also consider training or work experience, whether undertaken in or outside England and Wales, which is considered to be equivalent to UCAS points.
In addition, a level 2 qualification (or equivalent) in maths is required, however, if you do not currently hold a level 2 qualification in maths, we will support you to achieve this alongside your first two years of training with us.
