NTU signs five year agreement for MACA training

NTU signs five-year agreement to accredit officer training delivered by the Malaysia Anti-Corruption Academy.

At a virtual ceremony on the 27th July, 2021, Nottingham Trent University (NTU) and the Malaysia Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) signed the second supplementary agreement for NTU to accredit Level 5 and Level 7 officer training that is delivered by the Malaysia Anti-Corruption Academy (MACA).

Overseen by the Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice in the School of Social Sciences at NTU, this accreditation covers MACA’s officer training for the Professional Diploma in International Law Enforcement: Anti-Corruption Studies and the Postgraduate Certificate in Law Enforcement: Anti-Corruption Leadership. This is part of a long-standing relationship that the Department and MACA have that has included teaching collaboration and study visits to Malaysia and the UK.

MACC’s vision is of a world class anti-corruption law enforcement organisation. They are a statutory body in Malaysia with awarding powers, relating to rank and professional standing within all aspects of anti-corruption enforcement. The training arm of MACC, MACA is a hub for anti-corruption officer training in the Asia-Pacific Region, with a developed international training programme.

Prof. Cillian Ryan, Pro-Vice Chancellor International at NTU said, “The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission’s ambition to achieve excellence in world-class law enforcement, encourage original thinking and set the accreditation bench mark for training align with key themes of  Nottingham Trent University’s strategy including, valuing ideas, creating opportunities, empowering people and connecting globally. The training programmes that characterise our collaboration are the embodiment of these ambitions and I am delighted that this work continues to go from strength to strength.”

Dr Angus Nurse, Head of Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice said, “The agreement provides a foundation for new and closer partnership opportunities between our two organisations in international law enforcement.”
