Job Details:    Job Description    

Middlesex University is lead partner in a consortium with three other universities – the University of Portsmouth, Canterbury Christchurch University, and the University of Cumbria – that is delivering the Police Constable Degree Apprenticeship (PCDA) and the Degree Holders Entry Programme (DHEP) to three police services: Hampshire, Surrey and Sussex.  Teaching on the PCDA begins in December 2019, with Middlesex beginning its first classes in January 2020. 

The Department of Criminology and Sociology is seeking to appoint a Lecturer and an Associate Lecturer in Policing to join the team involved in developing and delivering these programmes, and to contribute to wider policing education at Middlesex University.

Both roles will have an excellent understanding of contemporary policing and the Policing Education Qualifications Framework, as well as a commitment to excellence in blended learning in a workplace environment.  While the Associate Lecturer will be teaching focused, the Lecturer will also have a developing profile in policing research.  

The Lecturer will be based initially at Middlesex University, with frequent visits to teaching sites. The Associate Lecturer will be focused on face-to-face teaching in police premises in Surrey, Sussex and Hampshire and may be based in one of these localities. The ability to travel and work in these three locations is an essential requirement of both the Lecturer and Associate Lecturer positions.

Our consortium is a ground-breaking initiative, combining four ambitious universities and three police services and is committed to transforming police education and training.  Both the Lecturer and Associate Lecturers will have significant scope for professional development offered by Middlesex University, as well as the chance to play key roles in shaping police training and learning in Surrey, Hampshire and Sussex in the first instance, with the potential for further developments into the future. 

Due to the nature of the role, the post holder will have unsupervised access to police premises and student officers’ personal data, appointment will be dependent upon successfully obtaining Non Police Personnel Vetting (NPPV) Level 2.

If you have any questions about Vetting please contact Joanne Nunn on

Interview for these posts will take place on Wednesday 4th and Thursday 5th December 2019.
