The recruitment and training process for police officers in Cambridgeshire has changed and we are operating the 'Policing Education Qualifications Framework' (PEQF) in partnership with Anglia Ruskin University. We are now recruiting for police officers through our Degree Holder Entry Programme (DHEP) and our Police Constable Degree Apprenticeship (PCDA). The DHEP and PCDA are part of PEQF, which aims to introduce a national standard level of education and training within the police service which reflects the current and future challenges we face. The new DHEP and PCDA entry requirements to policing mean all joining officers have a degree level qualification. This does not mean you need a degree to join as a student officer as we will be offering new routes to prepare student officers for the police constable role. The DHEP allows the conversion of a degree into a graduate diploma in Professional Policing Practice, while the PCDA involves studying a fully-funded degree apprenticeship. If you are interested in becoming a police officer with Cambridgeshire Constabulary, and have any questions about the routes available please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll be in contact.
