Level 6 Police Constable Apprenticeship

Police Constable Apprenticeship: Introduction

The Police Constable apprenticeship allows a learner interested in serving the public within a police force to get on the job training. As a police officer, you will be responsible for keeping the public and your colleagues safe, using your ability to assess situations and communicate effectively to bring about the best possible outcome to any situation, incident or crime. It is not just arresting criminals; it is giving support to vulnerable peoples, encouraging community cohesion, and investigating situations to uncover evidence. All the while, you will be operating to uphold the law, adhering to its standards as well as the standards of your police force. 


Entry Requirements

Typically, you will be 18 or older, and with a Level 3 qualification (or equivalent) prior to entry. A Level 2 qualification in Maths and English (or equivalent) will be necessary either before the course or as you complete it. This varies from force to force.

Behavioural Requirements

You’re more suited for becoming a police officer if you’re a responsible person, willingly taking accountability when the situation calls for it. This means putting yourself in leadership positions if necessary, giving guidance, taking risks, and accepting accountability. In the same vein, you need to be a professional: upholding standards of integrity, decency, ethics and values.

You also need to be a group player. You’ll be collaborating with other police officers, taking orders and working together to solve problems. As you’ll be facing the public, you need to be open and communicative, also taking appropriate action when necessary. This also comes with the requirement of being emotionally intelligent—gauging problems sometimes and especially in tense situations—and emotionally resilient.

You’ll also need to be good at thinking on your feet. Problem solving, looking at creative ways to approach situations, and a sense of curiosity are also key.

Within the course, you will have to: 

  • Respond to incidents, aiming to bring out the best possible outcome despite the nature of the incident
  • Conduct risk and threat analyses

  • Form and maintain partnerships with all manner of individuals, organisations and communities
