About us

Police Education Consortium_Police officer two.png

The Police Education Consortium was established in 2017 specifically to support the national implementation of the Police Education Qualifications Framework (PEQF) introduced by the College of Policing. The Consortium has a track record of delivering high-quality police education in collaboration with our force employer partners since 2019.


The Consortium is currently working in partnership with Surrey Police, Sussex Police and Hampshire and Isle of Wight Constabulary to deliver the Police Constable Degree Apprenticeship (PCDA), the Degree Holder Entry Programme (DHEP) and the Detective DHEP programme.

Ofsted GOOD Provider

The Consortium’s apprenticeship provision was rated ‘good’ by Ofsted in all five areas – overall effectiveness, quality of education, leadership and management, behaviour and attitudes and personal development.

In the report, Ofsted identified key strengths including:

Leaders and managers have developed a portfolio of apprenticeships many of which help address national workforce deficits, particularly around nursing and policing.  ​ 


Leaders and governors have a strong focus on teaching apprenticeships that enhance both employer productivity, and apprentices’ social mobility.  


They also focus well on programmes that help public sector employers meet some of the major challenges that have arisen as a result of the pandemic.  ​ 


Teaching staff are well qualified and have suitable vocational expertise in their respective fields. They have very good access to professional development.  ​ Apprentices develop into independent and reflective learners with a positive work ethic, a high level of professionalism and respect for others.  ​ 


As a result of their studies, apprentices acquire the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to succeed in their job and to progress in the workplace.
