Leadership foundations

Leadership standards and development for constables and staff working at or towards this level.

Leadership foundations curriculum

Stage one of the police leadership programme is aimed at anyone who has not joined the police service through a policing education qualifications framework (PEQF) entry route.

You'll learn how to: 

  • promote an inclusive culture at work that values diversity

  • challenge discrimination and inappropriate behaviour such as bullying and harassment

  • build 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. 

You'll need to register and log-in to access this content.
