Licensing Opportunities

From time to time the College will advertise its commercial licensing opportunities for external organisations to bid for, either on an exclusive basis or where there are a restricted number of licenses available

External organisations may however be able to deliver licensed College products where they have been formally engaged by a College licensee, such as a Home Office police force.

Under the new Policing Education Qualifications Framework (PEQF), organisations who have taught degree awarding powers (TDAP) can now obtain a licence to develop and deliver a Pre-join Degree in Professional Policing using the College's national policing curriculum.

Invitation to bid for a licence to use the College‚Äôs Domestic Abuse (DA) Matters Change Programme to deliver training to delegates from Home Office police forces (Licence Bid reference: COP003)

This announcement and invitation to participate in a competition is for a 2-year licence to use the College of Policing's Domestic Abuse Matters Change Programme ('DA Matters') to deliver training to delegates from Home Office police forces as listed in the Licence Description.  It includes the College's:

  • 1-Day (7 hour) First responder training 
  • 1-Day (7 hour) Champions training

The government's definition of domestic abuse is "Any incident or pattern of incidents of controlling, coercive, threatening behaviour, violence or abuse (psychological, physical, sexual, financial or emotional) between those aged 16 or over who are, or have been, intimate partners or family members regardless of gender or sexuality".

DA Matters is a programme of activity to help policing organisations to enhance the knowledge and skills of their workforce who act as 'First Responders' and those 'Champions' who manage or supervise them, in order to improve the police response to domestic abuse.  The trainer-led classroom based sessions include a mixture of videos, PowerPoint presentations, and group discussions.  Key learning outcomes are for delegates to be able to explain what is meant by the term 'coercive control', understand the effect of multiple controlling behaviours on victims, and identify why victims can find it difficult to leave an abusive partner.

Update: Deadline for applications is now 5.00pm, Wednesday 8 May 2019. (This has been extended from the previous deadline of Monday 6 May to take account of the Bank holiday)
