QPS INDIGENOUS CAREERS PATHWAYS
The Queensland Police Service (QPS) offers traineeships in the Justice Entry Program (JEP) for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. These traineeships are part of the Service�s commitment to equal opportunity and diversity in employment, and provide the education qualifications (including an Apply First Aid certificate) for entry into the QPS as a police recruit. Trainees who successfully complete this program are eligible to receive the nationally recognised qualification Certificate IV in Justice (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander).
Police recruiting are currently in the process of developing a new Indigenous Cadet Program (ICP) aimed at attracting post high school graduates (between the ages of 18-20 years) who aspire to becoming either a police officer or alternatively a civilianised employee with an attainment of a Coxswain Certification, working on Water Police Vessels around respective regions in Queensland. The ICP will provide an entry pathway into the JEP or alternatively police recruit training.
The next JEP Intake will commence in early July 2012, with the Recruiting – Indigenous Project Team committed to recruit as many aspiring and successful Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander as course participants.
