What personal qualities do I need to complete a qualification?

To complete an academic qualification you don’t need to have an academic background or a drawer full of qualifications and commendations.

As police officers and staff you work in complex and challenging roles on a daily basis, and so have often already developed many of the required skills and much of the knowledge that would be expected in academic study.

All you really need is a determination, self-drive and motivation to succeed and the desire to take control of your own future and development.
