Qualifications

On successful completion of your Student Officer Training Programme all Probationary Constables will be awarded with an Advanced Diploma in Policing.

Graduate Level Award: During your probation you will also follow a new and enhanced Probationary Officer Development Programme. The programme will be jointly delivered with Ulster University and will lead to the award of a BSc (Hons) Policing and Criminology (Applied Practice) for undergraduate applicants or other graduate level award for those applicants who already hold a recognised qualification.

You may also be eligible to apply for a Fast Track Programme, providing you are signed out of probation at programme start date. This is a development programme and promotion mechanism to enable the most talented to advance to the rank of Inspector in 2 years.
