Entry requirements

A pre-requisite of attendance on all PTRLDP modules is that the learner has a sound understanding of the issues of equality, diversity and human rights within a police training context. We emphasise the importance of this as a foundation for the whole PTRLDP programme. An introduction to the necessary learning is covered by the NCALT Introduction to Diversity e-learning package, which can be completed or reviewed, as appropriate.
Students will also need to complete the Enabling Learning in Practice Pre-Learning Workbook prior to attending the module.

If students are undertaking the Certificate in Teaching in the Lifelong Learning Sector (CTLLS) this module may assist them in gaining mandatory units towards this qualification. To access the CTLLS qualification, students would need to have already completed the Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector Award (PTLLS).
