UL to Accredit BA in Applied Policing for An Garda Siochana
#1
The University of Limerick and An Garda Síochána have signed a Memorandum of Understanding which will see the University of Limerick accredit the BA in Applied Policing delivered in the Garda Síochána College, Templemore.
The Garda Síochána College is the national centre for police training, development and education within the Irish state and provides foundation training programme for new recruits and operational training programmes to serving Gardaí, including high level training for senior management. The programme represents best practice in education and uses a combination of formal lecturers, problem based learning, and placement where student skills are developed.
The new programme is being coordinated by UL's Dr Eimear Spain and was developed by the Garda College in collaboration with the UL School of Law. The School of Law, led by Professor Shane Kilcommins, looks forward to working with An Garda Síochána in the coming years to ensure the continued success of training and educational initiatives within the Garda College. The lecturing staff in the Garda College will also be undertaking the Specialist Diploma in Teaching, Learning and Scholarship offered by the Centre for Teaching and Learning in UL

Which is more funny, the fact they are recognising it or the fact that the Garda "lecturers" have no teaching qualifications!!

This is nothing new, ul have been accrediting the Garda college for at least 15 years now.

A lot of the previous crews were doing teaching degrees through Galway if I remember correctly.

Is there a third level teaching degree, does such a thing exist..i thought you could train to be a primary or secondary teacher only, with the latter you normally have a primary degree in some discipline such as science..but in my humble opinion, common sense and a good attitude with people, beat Degrees hands down
