Competent Coppers: An Analysis of the Standards and Practices of Adult Education within the Australian Federal Police
Berzins, Michelle
Australian Journal of Adult Learning, v45 n2 p191-208 Jul 2005
The paper examines how the educational environment within the Australian Federal Police (AFP) has changed over their 25 year history. The case study was used as a methodological framework through which content analysis and interviews were conducted. It was found that due to the changing nature of their profession, the involvement of police personnel in ongoing personal and professional development is essential. Further, the educational environment fostered within the AFP was found to be one that keeps abreast of general advances in education, encourages further education of their personnel and delivers quality adult education through its accreditation as a Registered Training Organisation and a provider of nationally approved VET courses.
