Course Summary

LJMU's Evidence-Informed Practice PgDip is designed for 'in-service' criminal justice professionals who want to develop research skills.

  • Develop your research skills enabling you to generate research findings that contribute to the development of criminal justice policy and practice
  • Study over 15 months
  • Learn via LJMU-based study days, online learning and independent study
  • Undertake practice-relevant research to stimulate work-related learning for your employer
  • Follow this hybrid programme developed as a result of the successful delivery of the Police Knowledge Fund Project in partnership with Merseyside Police, the Home Office, College of Policing and HEFCE

The programme will enhance your awareness of, and engagement with, research and (good/best) practice-informed evidence in the development of operational criminal justice practice.

Building on the momentum of the successfully delivered Police Knowledge Fund, which developed participants' research skills and communication of often complex and sensitive findings, the programme draws on the fantastic wealth of interdisciplinary collaborations within the Faculty of Arts, Professional and Social Studies. The Liverpool Centre for Advanced Policing Studies has the capacity to source expertise beyond the immediate spheres of criminal justice and policing. Calling on partners specialising in STEM and Quantitative Social Sciences disciplines, the Centre will draw on their capacity to better understand and develop understandings of new and future challenges for criminal justice and offender management policies to engage with.
