Leadership Development

The Colleges Senior Leadership Programme (SLP) will no longer be delivered after December 2017. The College is developing a new approach to leadership development which will ensure wider access and more flexible access to leadership training and development opportunities.

A number of different options are currently being explored, these include:

  • A virtual learning environment (VLE), which will be accessed via the College of Policing membership site. This will enable all members to access training and development materials in order to complete qualifications in leadership and management.
  • A personal leadership course, delivered at the College and aimed at Chief Inspector / police staff equivalent and above.
  • A series of themed workshops / seminars on 'hot' leadership topics, delivered nationally or regionally.
  • A Command Skills Pathway - which will involve training at all levels (Operational / Tactical / Strategic). At the operational level, the College will develop materials for forces to deliver. At the tactical and strategic level the College will run two separate courses of two days each (including a Hydra exercise).
  • A new approach to delivering training and development opportunities to under - represented groups.

We are unable to commit to definite timescales as yet, but our intention is to have elements of the new leadership development programme available in the spring of 2018. Once more information becomes available it will be published on our website
