The Pearson BTEC Level 4 HNC in Policing will provide students with the generic knowledge, understanding and skills to enter employment within Policing, the wider public service sector or progressing onto BTEC Level 5 HND in Policing. Studying for this course will provide opportunities for students to learn a range of techniques and tools essential for successful performance in working life. It will help individuals to apply these skills at their workplace and build upon the knowledge they must have gained at the completion of the course.
