From 21st December 2020 Hertfordshire Constabulary will be operating the new "Policing Education Qualifications Framework" (PEQF) in partnership with Anglia Ruskin University.
It is still very much about on the job training to become a Police officer but with the benefit of gaining a fully funded degree, with training delivered in partnership with Anglia Ruskin University (ARU). You will be able to earn whilst you learn!
1. The Police Constable Degree Apprenticeship (PCDA)
