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