West Midlands Police are currently recruiting via our degree apprenticeship route for those who wish to become Police Officers. Do you want to be a police officer? Entry into the service has changed – and West Midlands Police is one of the first to recruit student officers to study for a degree apprenticeship while they work.


What you will do in your working day

As a Police Officer Degree Apprentice, you will study whilst you develop in the job role. Lots of your learning will be done digitally. You’ll log onto our partner University’s system to watch lectures and access learning modules from your computer, without needing to travel to campus on a regular basis.

When you’re not studying you’ll be working alongside your colleagues, on a neighbourhood policing team, on a response team, or in one of our investigations teams.


The training you will be getting

You will complete a level 6 degree apprenticeship with Staffordshire University, the West Midlands Police partner for this apprenticeship programme. The off the job training element of the programme will take place within the West Midlands and will be supported by rotations on a neighbourhood policing team, on a response team at the frontline of our emergency service, or in one of our investigations teams – helping to solve some of the most serious crimes and catch those responsible.

What to expect at the end of your apprenticeship

Once you have successfully completed the 3 year Police Constable Degree Apprenticeship, you will be posted into a Police Constable role within the West Midlands Police force.
