It’s National Apprenticeship Week and we would like to celebrate all our hard working and dedicated student officers and police staff.
Currently we have 174 student officers studying for the Police Constable Degree Apprenticeship (PCDA). The course is a three-year workplace learning programme that prepares our new recruits to become fully competent Officers whilst achieving a bachelor’s degree.
Additionally, we also have 83 police staff students currently studying for the PCSO Apprenticeship and Diploma in Community Policing Practice. We were one of the first forces in the UK to launch the PCSO apprenticeship in 2019 and we’re incredibly proud of each person that has committed to this public service apprenticeship, as it requires hard work and perseverance.
We’ve received feedback from local businesses and residents, who are already seeing the difference across communities in Sussex.
