Three young women got an insight into life as a police officer at a Ware career fair.
Officers from our Positive Action team joined the local Safer Neighbourhood Team and PCSO Karen Broad at the St Edmunds College event earlier this month.
PC Shazia Malik explained: “The Positive Action team gave a presentation to students explaining the fabulous opportunities a career in policing with Hertfordshire Constabulary provides, explaining the policing role and the training schemes under the new Policing Education Qualification Framework, or PEQF as we call it.
“With many of the students due to complete their sixth form courses this summer, the Police Constable Degree Apprenticeship spiked a good level of interest in those considering further education and apprenticeship programmes.”
Other emergency services also took part in the event on Friday 11 March, along with the military and top firms including Bloomberg, BT and GSK.
There’s never been a better time to become a police officer. We’re recruiting for police officers in Hertfordshire right now. Join as an apprentice and earn £24,780, plus a £2k regional allowance (rising to £2,500 in April). Initial training takes 20 weeks. Then there’s on-the-job training.
