Lead the specialist team at the centre of building the capabilities needed to protect London


Our 2025 vision is to build a professional capability fit for the 21st century so that officers and staff can protect London’s communities and keep them safe from harm. The evolving nature of operational demand, the changes to the national agenda and the expectations of the workforce call for rapid, thoughtful and professional changes to learning and development in the Met. Though Pillar 6 of Met Direction "Learn from experience, from others and constantly strive to improve" we are committed to developing a learning culture where officers and staff are equipped with the skills and capabilities they need to meet the current and future requirements of policing London. Our service is delivered through our people, which can only ever be as good as the capabilities of our workforce who do extraordinary things every day to keep London safe. We need to continue building on becoming a learning organisation with a professional workforce, equipped with the skills and capabilities necessary for policing in the 21st century, in order to deliver against the challenges we face and to build and maintain the trust and confidence of the public.

Central Services Operating Model

New services and processes within 'Central Services’ will strengthen the link between organisational and individual learning to ensure we learn as fast and as well as we can. This is achieved through the integration of a new Learning Management System (LMS) enhancing our capability to deliver fully blended and targeted learning at scale, to all learners across the MPS. Our operating model further builds the newly formed 'Gateway’ process into L&D. It dedicates resource to supporting 'Heads of Professions / Specialisms’ to define and develop the learning outcomes required across the workforce in relation to their area of policing, by translating these into the design (incorporating blended learning) and facilitating alignment and prioritisation across business areas. Working closely with CPIC, the model will enable the rapid and efficient implementation of Organisational Learning that demands a training response given the data reporting capabilities of the LMS. The new design will give us direct line of sight from the identification of a training need, through design and delivery and ultimately tracking completion and performance impact as the LMS directly enhances our capabilities to deliver a holistic learning experience across the MPS.

Systems, Data & Improvement

This pillar focuses on unlocking the capabilities of the LMS to deliver high quality learning content at scale across the MPS, focusing on delivering blended and modularised learning via the LMS. This pillar enables L&D to modernise our approach by organising learning according to job families, and curriculum pathways to target relevant & bespoke learning content directly to users across the MPS. The systems, data and improvement function ensures the operation of the LMS remains stable, and will drive the delivery of learning data dashboards alongside continuous improvement outcome reports feeding into wider tactical policy recommendations. At an individual level the LMS will offer a superior user experience for accessing, sharing and managing learning, to support a culture where learning is our collective responsibility. This will mean that officers and staff get what they actually need in order to do their jobs - a critical influencer of feeling well supported and well equipped at work. The Systems, Data and Improvement’ pillar will be key to releasing the benefits of the LMS by incorporating a clear data-led approach to drive performance management and career development, focusing on proactively identifying opportunities to embed continuous improvement initiatives at all levels across L&D delivery.

The Met Police’s mission is to keep London safe for everyone. To do so, we’re learning all the time. Whether that’s from experience, ourselves or from others, we need to understand the best ways to police our communities. As Head of Learning Technology, you’ll deliver effective development strategies across our organisation - and help us protect Londoners.

In this specialist senior role, you’ll utilise the Met’s Learning Management System (LMS) to shape the delivery of our training needs. You’ll integrate blended learning solutions, and promote specialist training and development to our officers and staff. We want to achieve the Met Pillar objective of becoming a learning organisation - and you’ll help us do just that. You’ll have a solutions-focused mindset and be proactive in driving forward opportunities for improvement.

With your strong knowledge of LMS integration and people development technologies, you’ll be organised and logical. You’ll direct the ways that learning is designed, delivered and evaluated in line with LMS capabilities. As an excellent communicator, you’ll inform senior leaders of where the knowledge gaps are - and influence change. Not only that, but you’ll lead with integrity and in accordance with Met values.

To join, you’ll be adept at getting the most from new technologies and talent management tools, preferably Cornerstone OnDemand. Experience with training and certifications in the public sector is essential. As is a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, Computer Science or a related field. Plus, you’ll have experience with large scale rollouts of talent management tools and have a proven ability to exceed objectives.
