It’s a great way to start your Lancashire Police career if you don’t already hold a degree.

You’ll study across several locations:

  • Hutton Hall (Police Headquarters)
  • UCLan Preston
  • Via online delivery

The course takes place in three blocks of learning throughout each year and involves classroom sessions, coursework and exams.
