Superintendents and Chief Superintendents across England and Wales are being offered coaching skills training by the College of Policing, to help them provide better support for officers and staff from groups currently under-represented in Policing.
The Police Superintendents’ Association of England and Wales has worked with the College of Policing to offer places at 12 one-day training sessions across the country.
More than 700 places will be available in total.
Association Vice President Paul Griffiths said:
“We are vocal campaigners in valuing difference. The benefits it can bring to policing go beyond being representative of our communities and include improved relationships with our own staff and with the public, better insight, and new ways of thinking.
“We believe the leaders in policing should be encouraging that difference to help policing be the best it can be and our members can play an important role here”.
“To support this, we are offering training places to more than half our membership to give them the skills they need to successfully mentor and coach colleagues from under-represented areas, to help them develop and progress.”
Places at the training sessions, which are planned for between January and March 2018, are funded by the College of Policing.
The dates and general locations are:
|Harperley Hall, Durham||22/03/18|
Superintendents and Chief Superintendents interested in the training should contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Details of locations will be confirmed when places are booked.
The College of Policing and the Home Office will assess the impact of the training and the scheme is also supported by NPCC, with several Chief Constables agreeing to open the sessions in their areas.
