Police Studies course launching at Kawerau school

On Thursday this week, Kawerau’s Tarawera High School will add an NCEA-accredited Police Studies course to its curriculum.

In collaboration with New Zealand Police and Unitec, the Introduction to Police Studies course will be delivered to Year 12 and 13 students in 2019, preparing the students to apply for entry to the Royal New Zealand Police College (RNZPC) on completion.

“Policing is a fantastic career and students who complete this course will be on a pathway to becoming an officer on leaving school,” says Acting Senior Sergeant Shane Tailby, Area Response Manager for Whakatane Police.

The NCEA Level 3 and 4 course is resourced by UNITEC and offers 25 NCEA Level 3 credits and covers the context of policing in New Zealand, relevant legislation, policies, strategies, procedures and ethics.

It also teaches the theory and practice involved in policing.

The course was developed in conjunction with New Zealand schools.

While it helps students prepare to apply for RNZPC, completion of the NCEA course does not guarantee students a place.

They will still need to meet the other entrance requirements.

But just imagine if you added some great pictures or videos to give your posts more, “pop”!

  7. Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and
    tested to see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views.
    I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!
