UK based coursesWe offer a range of Internationally acclaimed programmes, workshops and courses which we have developed in line with the UK National Occupational Standards and the College of Policing’s Authorised Professional Practice. To ensure standards we accredit our courses and use our unique COPS3 Progressive Learning Systemtm to focus learning on the issues we believe will best enhance the capability of individuals.
Our approach is to provide training to all but to recognise the difference that roles and experience have in the students’ needs.
To achieve this we award learning at three levels:
Awareness > for those people who are learning about a subject which they may use in their workplace.
Delivering > for those people engaged in delivery of services; learning will enhance their capability to deliver
Leading > for those people engaged in leadership and supervision of others or organisations.
We assess through formal knowledge checks (Awareness), simulations and exercises (Working) and through work based projects (Leading). Our delivery team will work with students to ensure they achieve the award at the right level for them, supporting them to gain sufficient learning and evidence. Our courses are open to all so we often have people who are at the awareness level working alongside those who are in advanced leadership positions. Our system encourages this mixed approach, sharing experiences, knowledge and skills amongst the students to keep the learning environment rooted in current operational issues.
