South Wales Police are currently seeking suitable candidates for their CKP (Certificate of Knowledge in Policing) course which is scheduled to start during June 2017. This qualification is currently an essential requirement for anyone wishing to apply to South Wales Police as a regular Constable. Under the provisions afforded by the Equality Act 2010, funding for this course will be made available to eligible candidates from black and minority ethnic (BME) backgrounds.  

A Spokesperson from South Wales Police said, “We remain hopeful of running this course in Swansea again, however, this is wholly dependent on the volume of interest we receive. We’ve struggled on previous courses to secure sufficient numbers to ensure that the course remains financially viable.”

Please canvass your friends, associates or service users to ensure that any interested persons have the chance to apply for this fantastic opportunity? There are currently 20 spaces remaining on this course. It’s important that BME individuals from our local communities are supported and developed towards achieving their full potential. 

This will be the final CKP course as guidance received from the Home Office requires that all forces in England and Wales move towards a graduate entry scheme.  At this time, we don’t have any further details of how that process will look, or the impact it may have on some of our diverse community members.   

If you require any further information regarding this opportunity please contact Swansea Bay REC (Tel: 01792 457035) or email South Wales Police  joinus@south-wales.pnn.police.uk
