Leadership standards for sergeants and staff, and development for those working at or towards this level.
First-line leaders curriculum
Stage two of the police leadership programme supports your development and prepares you for potential progression into a sergeant or first-line leader role. It's also open to existing sergeants to support you to be the best you can be in your current role.
You'll learn how to:
influence and develop an inclusive culture at work that values diversity
challenge discrimination and inappropriate behaviour such as bullying and harassment
build and maintain effective relationships with stakeholders, communities and partners
develop the skills needed to coach and mentor others
The curriculum is delivered by police forces across England and Wales, supported by the College of Policing, to provide leadership training and development to a consistent national standard. It provides the learning outcomes and minimum programme content that's needed for officers and staff to meet the national police leadership standards.
Implementing the curriculum
If you're implementing the design and delivery of a leadership development programme for a force, you can access the curriculum through the leadership centre catalogue on College Learn.
