On 1st April 2015 the Police (Promotion) Regulations 2015 amended the method by which police officers in England and Wales are promoted to the rank of Sergeant and Inspector.
The most significant changes were the removal of OSPRE Part II and the introduction of the National Police Promotion Framework (NPPF) and in particular the requirement to undertake work based assessment as part of temporary promotion.
These qualifications have been developed in partnership with the College of Policing to support individuals to develop the specific knowledge and skills that are required within management in the police service to support the NPPF.
