PSA secures programme of CPD events for superintendents

An extensive programme of continued professional development events has been confirmed for superintendents, thanks to work between the College of Policing and the Police Superintendents’ Association (PSA).
Starting this month, the College of Policing is hosting a series of online learning events covering a range of topics of importance to superintendents, such as learning from major incidents, wellbeing and inclusion.
The sessions will be led by chief officers and subject experts and are free for all superintendents to attend.
The opportunities come following work between the college and PSA President Paul Griffiths, who has sought to widen the development offering available for senior leaders.  Last year, Paul worked with the College to develop the ‘superintendents’ toolkit’, an online resource of leadership guidance, operational advice and wellbeing support for supers.
Paul explains, “I’m delighted that the College has put so much time and energy into producing this programme of development opportunities for our members.
“Superintendents are afforded the highest level of operational responsibility in forces and deal with serious threat, harm and risk every day, as well as being responsible for vast commands whilst leading strategic and corporate projects.  It’s crucial therefore that they are given the chance to hone and develop their experience and expertise and I’m confident that this offering by the College will support this.  I hope that our members make the most of these opportunities and enjoy the sessions which cover such important subject areas.”
