Pre-Join Approved Provider Scheme

The Pre-Join Approved Provider Scheme provides Police Forces with assurances that the set national minimum requirements for delivery of this area of learning are in place. This is achieved by quality assuring the learning provision by reviewing detailed evidence, against a framework of criteria using the Police Service Quality Management System (PSQMS).

Approved Providers currently offering courses are listed by region on our List of Approved Providers page.
