Meeting the CVF Challenge!

“I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.”

Jimmy Dean

The Policing Professional Framework (PPF) as we know it has changed.  Many forces have now made that transition to the new Competency and Values Framework (CVF).

CVF 2

Introduced in January 2017 it was first used withFast Track and Direct Entry.  Those of you now preparing for your police promotion boards will undoubtedly be assessed against the CVF.

Please be aware the CVF is fundamentally different.  

To be successful at your police promotion board you will need to fully understand the CVF criteria which contains 3 leadership clusters, 4 values and 6 competencies.

My experience of the CVF so far …

Those individuals that I have coached in recent months have been taken aback by the significant difference to the PPF criteria and have had to adjust their preparation well in advance of their promotion board.  Having been so used to the PPF I’ve now devised a CVF one page overview to help and support my clients.

Whether going for the Fast Track programme or applying for your next police promotion you will need to take time out to understand the criteria and how to apply it to your evidence.

I have been really pleased with the feedback received from individuals taking my new CVF online courses and my workshops and these remain available offering options to suit time and budgets.

I know it can be difficult to find time to prepare especially with today’s policing challenges but with such limited opportunities and tough competition it’s so important to get ahead of the game.

I wish you all luck for your police promotions.  If you would like further info please don’t hesitate to contact me or visit http://www.promotionprep.co.uk

What will make you stand out and get you that job in the police or police promotion you want?

What will make you stand out and get you that job in the police or police promotion you want?

Stand outI get asked this question all the time … having a good awareness of the issues affecting policing will help you to stand out from the crowd.

Whether thinking of joining the police or wanting that next police promotion, it is worth taking some time to critically analyse policing before working on your skills and experience.

My e-learning courses talk in more depth about challenges in policing but here are a few questions to get you thinking …

  1. Is degree entry into policing a good thing or not?  Will it affect efforts to have a police service which is representative of the public? Will some communities be disadvantaged by such a policy?
  2. What do you think about direct entry into policing at Inspector and Superintendent level?  Is it necessary and if so why?
  3. Is policing sustainable as it is?  Can the police force cope with new and unprecedented demands?  Should there be fewer police forces or even a national police force to reduce waste and ensure greater resilience?

What views do you have? Have you given them any thought?  How would you approach any of these questions or presentation subjects?

Help is on hand – regardless of whether you’re at the beginning of planning your police journey or taking the next step with police promotion – I’ve developed models, structures and will help you to think about and plan your answers.
