Associate personnel provide a valuable resource to the College of Policing, bringing current, relevant and specialist skills that complement our staff. Associate roles include trainers, coaches, assessors, designers, invigilators and expert witnesses.
Associates are "individuals who are independent of the College and who are sourced directly on a personal basis, or via an agency, charity, partnership or limited company for specific tasks". Please note that currently employed police officers, police staff, civil servants or employees of any other public sector body cannot be engaged through this route.
We have been reviewing the way in which we work with our Associates. This has been prompted by a number of factors including queries raised by our staff and Associates. It has also coincided with changes to off-payroll working in the public sector, referred to broadly as IR35.
As a result, we have developed new ways of working that we hope will address these issues and are documented in the new Associates Policy and supporting documentation. If you have any questions about this please email firstname.lastname@example.org
The pricing structure of the available vetting levels is as follows:
* NPPV 1 £55 per application (valid for 3 years provided engagements in each 12 month period)

We will begin advertising pools in the near future.
To express your interest in joining one or more of these pools and being an Associate, please complete either the Associate Expression of Interest Form, or complete the Invigilator and SME Expression of Interest Form as specified and return the applicable form to email@example.com.
Only Expressions of Interest relevant to the advertised pools will be considered. Please make it clear in your Expression of Interest the pool(s) you are applying for.
From 1st April 2018 we will only engage Associates who have been successful in securing a place in one or more of the pools. In the meantime existing engagements will continue as normal.
