CEO and President London Policing College
We work in formal and informal partnerships to design and deliver programmes and products that are relevant to the local policing context and the needs of officers. Using our experience, our research and our network of contacts we are able to respond to nearly all operational, strategic and tactical requests for support and can usually deploy quickly. We believe in local partnerships with the police and community working closely together to enhance safety and address criminality. At the heart of this is a drive for excellent policing skills serving the public and responding to crime.
We currently have several partnerships with police education providers which is the first stage in us working abroad. These take a long time to develop and require commitment and engagement. The end result is a deeper understanding of cultures and contexts and we believe better outcomes.
Below are some of the courses we provide directly to individuals or through arrangements with police forces and police educators:

Whilst not a formal partner, we have worked closely with the International Police Association (IPA) for several years. They have contributed considerably to our conferences and with them we have delivered programmes at IBZ Gimborn in Germany. We work with both the UK Section and the main organisation and have made many friends and contacts, providing us new insights into the challenges of policing and the many solutions that are out there.

We use a range of teaching styles in our programmes underpinned by a rigorous approach to design and development. The approach is to understand the performance and training needs of the client, consider the knowledge, skills and behaviours required and develop a student/delegate focussed event. We bring a lot of experience and believe this is truly relevant when used within an understanding of the local policing context and expectations. Being student focused means we ask our delegates to bring their own experiences and needs to the classroom and then use these as the context for teaching. To help with this we use:
Where possible we look for improvement in workplace performance using the Kirkpatrick Scale to design tests and evaluations.
