Today, in our final contribution to CPD Week, you can read about the experience of one senior officer, Jane Birkett, from the National Crime Agency in being one of the Open University’s Senior Practitioner Research Fellows.
Today we highlight the importance of mentoring for supporting CPD. Part of our work this year has been to develop resources which help police professionals understand their role as a mentor and help develop skills and techniques for supporting the learning of the staff they mentor.
Today’s CPD activity highlights a new Open Educational Resource (OER) called Finding the Truth. This looks critically at the assumptions we make about the evidence gathered around three fictional crimes.
Today’s CPD activity is an Evidence Café being held at Thames Valley Police. The subject of the Café is leadership and appropriately it will be led by Centre Director, Professor Jean Hartley, alongside our Evidence Café academic lead Dr Gill Clough.
Welcome to CPD Week on our website. Each day this week we will highlight an aspect of our work which is contributing to continuing professional development in policing.
