How people became a police officer in the GMP in 1988?

I have a question regarding the recruitment/training process in the Greater Manchester Police during the 1980s.

Research I've conducted up to now suggests that training would be conducted at Sedgley House/Sedgley Park Training Centre. Is that right?

These days I believe recruits spend 1-3 weeks at Sedgley House and then for weeks 4-28 go to an Area Training Base. There's a two-year probation. My question is, what would have happened around 1988/1989? Also, what would some of the basic training consist of?

Any information at all from around that time (or even later than this, since I'm sure some basics remain the same) would be vastly appreciated.

Research already conducted: Google, GMP website, PoliceOracle.com, wikipedia.
