PeoplePlus has launched a Police Force Employability Routeway that gives people from all walks of life the opportunity to join the police force. The PeoplePlus team in Nottingham teamed up with Sam Winter (Head of People Services) and Nigel Best (Career advisor) from Nottinghamshire Police to be able to run this programme that supports people with no experience enter into various roles including; police staff (IT & Admin), community support, police officers, special constables, dog handlers and call centre operatives. Following on from last month’s programme, 18 of our PeoplePlus candidates have now been interviewed by Nottinghamshire police, with the Police Force commenting that they were “very impressed with the calibre and diversity of learners”. Candidates were provided with upcoming vacancy opportunities and will continue through to the next stage of interviews. Ellen Sculthorpe (Employer Relationship Manager at PeoplePlus) said “There was a real buzz in the office, the feedback about the candidates was so positive and they were so impressed with how tutor Dawn Stevens delivered the course”.
This is what some of the candidates had to say:
“I didn’t think I would ever have the chance to join the police force until I found PeoplePlus – they have provided an opportunity for me to get in front of the Head of People services and I am walking away with a qualification and link into my dream job with the police. Dawn Stevens is an outstanding tutor”
“ I rate PeoplePlus as one of the best training companies in Nottingham, thank you for this course and to all the team”
“ I really enjoyed the Police course with PeoplePlus. Dawn was a an amazing tutor who gave so much support and help. I loved that the course ended with us being able to have a one to one with Nottinghamshire Police. It gave me an insight into which jobs are available to me and which suits me best”
We can’t wait to hear how our PeoplePlus learners have progressed with their journeys into the Police Force. Due to the success of the first pilot we have upcoming courses starting soon at our Nottingham Skills Centre.
