The Police Education Qualification Framework

The Police Education Qualification Framework (PEQF) is the introduction of a standardised national framework that sets minimum qualification levels by rank or level of practice for all Police officers and staff. Developed by the College of Policing, this is set to radically change contemporary policing through an increased focus on evidence based policing and academic programmes of study.

Few institutions are as well positioned as Northumbria University to support the breadth of PEQF, with the quality of expertise in Criminology, Business and Law, Forensic Science, Computer Forensics, and a vibrant research culture supporting evidence based policing.

If you are interested in Police Degree Apprenticeships, Degree Apprenticeships for non officer roles, recognition of prior learning for all Police Officers and Police Staff, conversion programme for graduates, Higher Degree Apprenticeships or professional doctorate programmes we would welcome the opportunity to work with you.
