More than a quarter of Superintendents and Chief Superintendents have signed up for training in coaching and mentoring skills, to help them provide better support to officers and staff from groups currently under-represented in policing
So far 334 members of the Police Superintendents’ Association of England and Wales – 27% of the membership – have committed to places on one of the 12 training sessions offered by the Association and the College of Policing.
Association Vice President Paul Griffiths said:
“Valuing difference in policing is really important and our Association is committed to doing all we can to support it.
“We are very keen to make policing more representative of our communities. I am delighted that so many of our members have taken up this opportunity to improve their skills in coaching and mentoring, to help support colleagues from under-represented areas in developing and progressing their careers in policing.”
Representatives from police staff, network groups and the Police Federation will also be attending the sessions.
Places are still available at the training sessions in February and March 2018 and are funded by the College of Policing.
The dates and general locations are:
|Harperley Hall, Durham||12/03/18|
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.
