Intelligence Professionalisation Programme (IPP) The Intelligence Professionalisation Programme is a multi-agency framework designed to provide standards for the certification of Intelligence Professionals. The framework consists of nine core functions with agreed standards of competency and assessment, national learning standards and an intelligence learning programme. The Intelligence Learning Programme is a suite of modules designed to provide up-to date and accredited, in-force development to Intelligence Officers, Researchers, Analysts and Intelligence Managers looking to advance their personal skillset and professional development. OverviewThis recently developed programme has been designed to be taken in succession from foundation level through to managerial level in intelligence. Although it is recommended that learners attend each module in succession, it is possible to attend individual modules as part of a personal development process. The programme is designed to be delivered locally by Home Office Forces and other IPP organisations, under College of Policing licencing arrangements.Prior to each module learners are required to undertake pre-learning activity to gain an insight into key policy, legislation and processes that will be brought into activities in each module. Using group scenarios each module seamlessly builds on the last. Training will take an interactive and pragmatic approach to providing learners with the knowledge, informed discussions and hands-on experience of case work required as they make each step-change in their intelligence career.To encourage a commitment to on-going and reflective development, learners are asked to reflect on their development using a learning journal. Following each module, learners will also be provided with reference material designed to be utilised in their role and supportive of intelligence APP.Key benefits of the College of Policing Intelligence Professionalisation Programme
