3.32 Tutor constables - A critical role for making Uplift a success (Phase 3)

Academic team: Dr Emma Williams, Laura Knight, Benjamin Bowles 
Policing partners: TBC
Status: Complete


Phase 3 of the Tutor Constables research extends the question of how effective current L&D processes are for the professional socialisation and enskillment of new recruits beyond the 'tutor phase' and into the post-tutoring period of on-the-job workplace assessment by professional Assessors. This review seeks to:

  • Draw out relevant learning from Phase 1 and 2 of the research exploring police tutoring models and onboarding of new recruits
  • Identify the essential and desirable skillsets and attributes of work-based assessors, including examination of the impact of organisational or self-selection of the role of Assessor
  • Examine key features of effective tutoring and work-based assessment delivery models, reflecting on those applied by other professions
  • Compare and contrast the current assessment models being deployed, considering perceived effectiveness in terms of learner satisfaction, operational performance, links with academic competence assessment and timing of assessments
  • Highlight any evidence of links between assessment processes and attrition
