Research context

The aims are to establish the perceptions of the new education on probationer constables, the impact it has on their relationship with others who have not undertaken the awards, and to explore their perceptions of organisational justice within the police as newly appointed constables.

Research methodology

The University of South Wales delivers the new police qualification to five forces across England and Wales. Working with these forces, and obtaining the correct ethical approval, newly appointed constables were sent a personalised email with a link to a survey for completion.

This survey, when completed, was analysed using SPSS. 82 individuals responded to this request.

Interim reports or publications

Reports will be published at intervals through the study.
