Fixed Term Contract until 28th February 2019.

A strategic alliance has been formed between Warwickshire Police and West Mercia Police in order to enable both forces to meet the challenge of reducing policing budgets. By working more closely together the forces will benefit from greater operational and organisational resilience, making us the fourth largest geographic police area in England and Wales.

This is a chance to shape policing to deliver the Warwickshire Police and West Mercia Police Vulnerability Strategy. This Learning programme builds on the pilot in Warwickshire and is part of an all-encompassing learning campaign which sees an innovative approach to ongoing learning using the most recent thinking about the ways that adults learn.

It is also a chance to guide and shape our 2 forces and their response to vulnerability, ensuring an ongoing positive impact on both the public and our own staff.

If you wish to become involved in this exciting programme, you will need to have a background in training, a deep commitment to ongoing learning, and, of course, excellent communication skills.

Warwickshire Police and West Mercia Police are rolling out a series of impactive training products in support of the alliance Vulnerability Strategy. This includes a package for delivery to all front line staff to better equip them in recognising and responding to those who are vulnerable within our communities and a supervisor input which looks into our own staff as well as the wider public. The aim of the vulnerability training plan is to:

• Give staff a greater understanding of the importance of being professionally curious.
• Change attitudes and behaviour in approaching and dealing with vulnerability.

The design of these products addresses both intellectual and emotional (mind-set) objectives which are innovative and new to the policing environment.

The main purpose of the role is to deliver, revise and evaluate the Vulnerability strategy training programme. Also to assess the achievement of the vulnerability strategy and provide professional feedback and/or development of the programme as appropriate.
