The Course

The HNC in Policing is aimed at equipping students with sector specific skills, knowledge, and the understanding necessary to achieve high performance in the global policing environment. It will provide insight and understanding into the diversity of roles within the police, recognising the importance of collaboration at all levels. It will equip students with knowledge and understanding of culturally diverse organisations, cross-cultural issues, diversity, and values.

The course will also provide opportunities for students to progress to higher education qualifications such as an honors degree in policing or a related area, and will help students to develop the skills, techniques, and personal attributes essential for successful working lives.

You will gain an understanding of the local, regional, and global context of policing and, for those students with a global outlook, it could open international career pathways.
