TVP Opens Police Officer Recruitment For Non-Degree Holders

“The best thing about working in policing is the variety and having the opportunity to make lasting positive impressions.” – Pete, Police Constable on the Positive Action and Engagement Team.

Join our team in 2022! Thames Valley Police (TVP) is actively looking for people to ‘be the difference they want to see’ in their communities.

For a limited period of time, our force is recruiting for police officers via the Initial Police Learning and Development Programme (IPLDP).

This fantastic opportunity is now open to all candidates over the age of 17 who meet the eligibility criteria but who do not wish to work towards academic qualifications in tandem with becoming a police officer.

The Initial Police Learning and Development Programme (IPLDP) means:

  • No requirement for a degree to apply
  • No requirement for A-levels to apply
  • To be eligible for this entry route you must have GCSE English and Maths (Grades 9-4/A*-C) and meet our other eligibility criteria – more details here.

If you are interested in working towards an academic qualification in tandem with becoming a Police Officer, we have alternative entry routes that are also accepting applications.
To find out more about a policing career with TVP as a Police Officer via our entry routes, including the realities of working on Response, initial training, and to apply please visit our Police Officer page.

In addition, we are open for a variety of other roles within our force, such as Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs), Specials, 999/101 Call Handlers, Transferees and Re-joiners.
