Thematic Inspection of Police Scotland Training and Development - Phase 1 - Terms of Reference

10 December 2019

The aim of this inspection will be to assess the effectiveness and efficiency of the Training and Development function and the quality of the products it develops, delivers and commissions. It will scrutinise how well Police Scotland is meeting its relevant commitments as set out in the People Strategy 2018-21 and the Serving a Changing Scotland Strategy (currently under review).

The Phase 1 inspection will also examine the new ‘MyCareer’ system, replacement for the former Personal Development Conversations (PDC) and Personal Development and Review (PDR) approaches, encompassing continuous professional development. HMICS will also consider leadership development, talent management and promotion processes through the new Leadership Pathways programme.
