Change your life today by embarking on your career with Durham Constabulary with the Police Constable Degree Apprenticeship (PCDA). This route allows you to earn a competitive salary while studying towards a fully funded degree.

You’ll be employed as an officer from day one with a starting salary of £26,682 meaning you can make a difference communities across County Durham and Darlington while also being fully supported in applying your learning practically on the job. This programme will be delivered in partnership with Northumbria University and all degree costs are covered by the force.
