Police graduate leadership programme sees additional police officers coming to Ealing

A special graduate leadership programme to help recruit more people to join the police has seen 42 new police constables join the Metropolitan Police Service in London. Two of the officers will be based in West Area which covers Ealing.

Police Constables Nadia Yousaf and Evie Clyne, are part of an initiative that has seen over 2,450 people joining police forces across the country by Police Now from its National Graduate Leadership Programme.

Since 2014, Police Now, an independent charitable social enterprise, has been working to help communities by providing training to enable people from diverse backgrounds to become officers.

The seven week residential academy provides the core knowledge and skills required of a police constable as part of the two year programme. Following this, the officers then join a force for the remainder of their training.

 

PC Yousaf told EALING.NEWS: “Joining the Metropolitan Police and completing the Police Now Academy has to be one of the greatest accomplishments of my life. It is without a doubt challenging process, but for me personally, especially as a woman of colour, it truly made me realise how much I am capable of. It made me get comfortable with being uncomfortable, something which no matter your age, race or religion you can benefit from.”

The officers will now continue to develop their leadership and problem-solving skills in force for the remainder of the two-year programme and beyond. They will also work towards their Graduate Diploma in Professional Policing Practice, in partnership with Liverpool John Moores University.

Applications for Police Now’s National Graduate Leadership Programme are currently open.
