Collaborative deep dive summary report

Research output: Book/ReportOther report


The Open University’s Centre for Policing Research and Learning (CPRL) and MOPAC worked together, on a Police Transformation Fund grant from the Home Office, to undertake action research to support the development of the training, learning and development (TLD) function in all 43 English and Welsh territorial police forces.

This action research initiative derived from Policing Vision 20251, which recognises that the policing challenges of the future are changing in scale, nature and complexity, so, learning and development will also need to change to nurture a continually learning, problem-solving workforce, which works not only with craft but informed by a scientific evidence base. Many forces recognise that their Learning and Development (L and D) function is not yet fully prepared for these challenges or the introduction of the PEQF initial education routes. The project’s baseline survey of attitudes and practices in L and D confirmed this.
