Police Educational Qualification Contract Framework (PEQF)

Decision

To approve the signing of the PEQF contact

Decision Summary

The College of Policing has introduced a national approach to recognise and raising educational standards in policing and to support the development of policing as a profession, which is referred to as the Police Educational Qualification Contract Framework. Bedfordshire Police, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Constabulary currently deliver the Initial Police Learning Development Programme for new police constables. This was a two-year programme upon successful completion and awarded a level 3 Diploma in Policing. This qualification is due to cease on 30th June 2020. This will be replaced by the new PEQF.

As reported the Commissioners Business Coordination Board on the 25th February 2020, the board has approved the signing of the PEQF contact when the contact is finalised. 

The contact was finalised, signed and sealed on the 23rd March 2020
