Professionalisation of the Police Service Through the Police Education Qualifications Framework

The Symposium will be opened by the University of Cumbria Vice Chancellor Professor Julie Mennell and Cumbria Chief Constable Jerry Graham. 

By 2020, the Police Service will have implemented a standardised national framework that sets minimum qualification levels by rank or level of practice. This Symposium offers the opportunity to bring together a wide spectrum of expertise in policing to contribute to the debate.

Significant developments in how police are promoted, qualified and enter the service will undoubtedly change the future of policing. For the first time, police officers across England and Wales can obtain education qualifications which acknowledge the skills and professionalism required to perform their job.

The Symposium will look at potential challenges of making the transition from public service occupation to public service profession from dealing with resistance within the service to managing aims and expectations of serving officers, and will hear from a wide range of Key Note speakers.
