UNIVERSITY TO LAUNCH NEW POLICE STUDIES DEGREE
A new degree course in Police Studies will be launched at the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside this week.
The new work-based learning degree course is the result of a ground-breaking collaboration between the university and Lincolnshire Police and is believed to be unique in the UK.
Work-based learning allows students to study while continuing to work and provides formal recognition for expertise and competencies gained in the workplace. Students will follow units including Information Technology, Social Policy, Law in Action
Integration and Exclusion and Communication Skills.
“The university has invested more than two years of research and development, working with Lincolnshire Police and other organisations, to develop this innovative approach,” commented Martin Pinnick, Reach-Out Manager for the Faculty of Social and Life Sciences.
Units will be delivered on-campus and in the workplace and each level is expected to take most students at least one year to complete.
The Police Studies course at ULH is unique in that it is designed for both serving police officers and administrative support staff.
The event will take place in the Vice Chancellor’s annexe in Lincoln.
