The Police Foundation, the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime in London, and the Open University Centre for Policing Research and Learning are holding a National Learning Network event on transforming learning and development in policing.
The event will discuss how policing can achieve the workforce aspirations set out in the Policing Vision 2025. Attendees will learn more about the findings of the Implementing the Transformation of Police Learning and Development project led by the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC) and the Centre for Policing Learning and Research at the Open University.
The event will discuss a range of themes including:
- What does a model police training, learning and development unit look like and how do we get there?
- How do we ensure that learning and development programmes are meeting the future skills needs of the service?
- What are the organisational and cultural conditions required to promote a learning profession?
The event will be of interest to those working in or managing learning and development within policing, universities involved in delivering policing qualifications, including the PEQF, researchers into learning and development within policing and Police and Crime Commissioners’ offices.
