Police Community Support Officers, Apprenticeship

What will I do on this course?

The apprenticeship provides valuable workplace skills and experience, while you earn a wage. You will spend at least 4 days a week with an employer and you will also attend sessions at college and/or ‘off the job’ onsite at your place of work, to learn the theoretical elements of the role. You will study a Level 4 PCSO qualification.

Apprentices without Level 2 English and maths will need to achieve this level prior to undertaking the end-point assessment.

How will I be assessed?

Apprentices will need to achieve the core skills and knowledge, behaviours contained within the apprenticeship and will be assessed through a work based operational competence portfolio of evidence, together with an end-point assessment (EPA), which consists of a professional discussion and a presentation of a community-based problem solving assignment. Apprentices will also undertake a Level 4 PCSO qualification.

What could I do after this course?

Most Weston College apprentices are kept on by their employer after they finish. You could progress onto a BA (Hons) degree in Uniformed Public Services upon completion of this apprenticeship.


Entry Requirements

These vary from force to force. Typically, a PCSO will be 18 or older, and is highly likely to have achieved a Level 3 qualification (or equivalent) and Level 2 in English and maths (or equivalents) prior to entry.
