Licensing and Accreditation Training Development Officer - CT Policing National Counter Terrorism Se

Support improved security across the UK


These uniquely challenging times, call for new and innovative approaches to continue keeping the public and the country safe. As we move away from the old Crowded Places Model, to a new broader approach of Protecting Publicly Accessible Locations (PALs), the scope of our requirements has grown and transformed. We need to design and deliver a new wider approach to security, covering key strands across the Government and the Public Sector – while supporting the emerging Protect Duty legislation that is being considered.


As Training Development Officer, you’ll ensure the consistent delivery of all NaCTSO training of Counter Terrorism Security Advisors (CTSA), Counter Terrorism Awareness Advisors (CTAA) and Counter Terrorism (CT) Prepare resources throughout the CT network. You’ll also oversee the training and accreditation of lead government departments and private sector organisations – all in line with City and Guilds and others external verifications. You’ll support the management of training and accreditation with the office of the NCPP, regionally based Protect and Prepare Leads, CT Units, Local Resilience Forums and other partners – making sure that there is consistent capability across the UK.


Based in London, with the flexibility to work remotely, you’ll bring with you a working knowledge of CT protective security and an understanding of the National Risk Register. You’ll already be familiar with Protect and Prepare products and plans, and confident supporting the submission of CTSA licence applications or CT Prepare CPD evidence. An excellent communicator with exceptional organisation skills, you’ll have experience of assessing evidence submitted for CPD or equivalent as well.


In return, we can offer a key role that comes with wide-ranging rewards and benefits. Help us take UK policing digital. Join us at the Met.
