What will the apprentice be doing?

As a Police Officer Degree Apprentice, you will study whilst you develop in the job role. Lots of your learning will be done digitally. You'll log onto our partner University's system to watch lectures and access learning modules from your computer, without needing to travel to campus on a regular basis.

When you're not studying you'll be working alongside your colleagues, on a neighbourhood policing team, on a response team, or in one of our investigations teams.

What training will the apprentice take and what qualification will the apprentice get at the end?

You will complete a level 6 degree apprenticeship with Staffordshire University, the West Midlands Police partner for this apprenticeship programme. The off the job training element of the programme will take place within the West Midlands and will be supported by rotations on a neighbourhood policing team, on a response team at the frontline of our emergency service, or in one of our investigations teams - helping to solve some of the most serious crimes and catch those responsible.

What is the expected career progression after this apprenticeship?

Once you have successfully completed the 3 year Police Constable Degree Apprenticeship, you will be posted into a Police Constable role within the West Midlands Police force.
