In order to be eligible for the 15 month PQiP, you will need to have demonstrated learning in the following 4 areas, either within your Level 5 or above qualification, or through completion of the required knowledge modules:
- Crime and Criminal Behaviour
- Criminal Justice System
- Penal Policy and Punishment of Offenders
- Rehabilitation of Offenders
Successful candidates would need to have started their 3rd knowledge module in order to be eligible for the 15 month route. The 4th module will be funded as part of the PQiP and will need to be completed within the first 6 months of joining the programme.
If your qualification does not include any of these subject areas or you have completed less than 3 modules, this means that you are likely to be placed on the extended PQiP, the 21 month route. The first 6 months will include studying the knowledge modules which will be funded by the NPS.
