College of Policing meeting update

As part of the work towards developing APComm training, members of the Executive Committee met with key representatives from the College of Policing training team. The meeting on 14 April 2015 ended with an agreement on three key areas of work to support the delivery plan action about training.

1. To consider licensing the Police Press Officers course provided by Lincolnshire Police and supported by APComm

2. To develop specialist communication CPD elements to support the College of Policing CPD work that is currently in design

3. To provide expert advice on the communication and media elements of other College of Policing training activity

The lead Executive Committee members for the pieces of work are 1 – Tony Diggins, 2 – Amanda Coleman, 3 – Nick Cloke.

The detail of the developments were discussed at the April APComm meeting and further updates will be provided in the coming months. Any APComm members who want to get involved in the CPD element of the work are urged to contact Amanda Coleman.
