Chief Officers CPD 'Business Skills' - 19th November 2019, Ryton

A one-day programme delivered by Deloitte

Following the  success of the 'business skills' module on the 2019 Strategic Command Course, this will cover:

  • Policing 4.0: a strategic look at the future of policing and what that means for the future of work
  • The role of the SRO: how can SROs enable the success of programmes and maximise their personal impact
  • Commercial awareness: how can we set ourselves up for commercial success – for us, for our forces and for our suppliers


SIRO Hydra Exercise - 28th January 2020, Ryton

This one-day hydra facilitated event will be extremely beneficial to those who currently perform the role of Senior Information Risk Owner (SIRO) or are likely to in the future.  Through immersive learning the delegate will be called upon to make decisions, and explain the rationale behind them, whilst managing an information breach scenario.  The scenario will explore the management of risk and provide opportunities for developing strategies for mitigating risk.  It will also consider the role and remit of the SIRO, the need for strong information governance and highlight the sources of information and support available to the SIRO.  The scenario is based on a real incident and consequently SIRO's could be called upon to manage such an incident at any time.

Entry requirements:

The course is open to those who currently perform the role of Senior Information Risk Owner (SIRO) or are likely to in the future at DCC & ACC level or equivalent.

If you require on-site accommodation this is chargeable and will be dependent on availability.  Please contact hub@college.pnn.police.uk for price information.

Mentoring for Chief Constables

The Senior Leaders Hub supports appointments and provides CPD opportunities for Chief Officers as well as offering development opportunities for those wishing to progress to the most senior levels of the service. One of the services offered in connection with attendance at e.g. the Senior Leaders Development Centre, is Chief Officer level mentoring. We have seen real value and benefit in mentoring, for both mentors and mentees alike.

Following on from that, we now have a list of Chief Constables who have kindly offered to mentor their newly appointed (or more established) peers.

If you are interested in having the support of a mentor (or if you wold like to be a mentor yourself), then please contact us at hub@college.pnn.police.uk.


If you have any suggestions for topics or activities you would be interested in, do please let us know by emailing hub@college.pnn.police.uk and we will try and build those in.


Further options to support development at all ranks/levels can be found on our Leadership development choices page, here
