The College of Policing (CoP) was seeking a partner to:
- Design and deliver a pilot to provide access to leadership and management qualifications (at Level 6, 7 & 8) to officers and staff across the UK who want to develop their leadership and management skills;
- Design and build a bespoke virtual learning environment (“VLE”) that would act as the “back-bone” to deliver these qualifications in a blended way to initially 200 managers and leaders across Police Forces.
This “blended approach” would allow for scalable, self-directed learning, accessible at all times on all available digital devices. Providing a consistent approach to leadership and management development across forces.
The CoP was established in 2012 as the professional body for everyone who works for the police service in England and Wales. The purpose of the CoP is to provide those working in policing with the skills and knowledge necessary to prevent crime, protect the public, and secure public trust.
