Academic Tutors – Police Constable Degree Apprenticeship (PCDA)

Academic Tutors – Police Constable Degree Apprenticeship (PCDA) – North Yorkshire

As part of the Open University’s rapidly developing degree apprenticeship offer, we are seeking to appoint part-time Academic Tutors (Associate Lectures) to teach apprentices on the first academic module of the Police Constable Degree Apprenticeship (PCDA), working with our partner North Yorkshire Police.

The first year module Concepts and theories in policing 1 (BXY132) is a 60 credit Level 4 module, on the BSc (Hons) Professional Policing Practice qualification, designed to introduce apprentices to the wide range of interdisciplinary perspectives that underpin modern policing. They will explore the role, function and structures of policing that exists today based on events and changes to the social, economic and political climates throughout history.

Academic Tutors (Associate Lectures) play a vital role in enabling the apprentices to apply their academic learning in a practical way in their workplace, and you will provide face-to-face and online learning tuition support for a cohort of around 16 apprentices. The role also involves helping apprentices to engage with the online learning materials and mark their assignments on these modules.

This is an exciting opportunity to work with PCDA apprentices, with the first cohort commencing the Concepts and theories in policing 1 (BXY132) module in October 2020, following an induction event at the end of June 2020 which Associate Lecturers are expected to participate in.

Successful candidates will have relevant experience of working within the criminal justice sector (preferably with experience of working in policing within the last 5 years), a relevant degree level qualification (see person specification for requirements), together with experience of teaching and coaching in the workplace, experience of assessing work-based competencies and supporting learners to develop evidence portfolios.

Please note that all associate lecturers appointed to this module will be required to pass both a Non-Police Personnel Vetting Level 2 Abbreviated (NPPV2 Abv)
