An NCC Home Learning student who has recently completed the Criminal Psychology Diploma Level 4, has now been awarded a promotion within the Scottish police force!

The student was promoted from a Police Constable to a Detective in the Scottish Police Force thanks to NCC’s qualification in Criminal Psychology.

After studying the Level 3 Diploma Certificate in Criminology, the student began searching for other courses in order to progress to a BSC (Hons) in Psychology, when they came across the Criminal Psychology course provided by NCC Home Learning as part of their criminology diploma courses.

The soon to be Detective expressed an interest in this course as the Criminal Psychology Diploma examines the history of crime and punishment and explores different theories of offending before examining the psychology of violent crime.

The Detective Constable of the Scottish Police Force, stated: “The modules overlapped nicely, giving a gentle introduction to the oncoming module. The study itself was challenging but not overwhelming. The feedback from my tutor was always dynamic, concise, relevant and above all, constructive and encouraging.”

On completion of the Criminal Psychology Diploma the now Detective Constable contacted NCC Home Learning to say “Thank you for all the help and assistance that you have provided throughout the course. I'm sure that you will be pleased to learn that as a consequence of the course, I've managed to secure a Detective Constable post within the Scottish Police Force. Your feedback was instrumental in helping me achieve this, so thank you again!”

They continued by saying: “I would heartily recommend this course to anyone considering an introduction into the career of Psychology. It is very handy to have on the CV!”

The Detective of the Scottish Police Force is a prime example of how NCC Home learning’s courses help to develop students’ skills and further their knowledge, in order to progress in their career.
