You'll cover the core skills you need as a probation officer:
- Managing information effectively
- Respond to diverse needs of service users and others.
You'll also choose options that give you the specific skills and knowledge needed in your probation trust or the particular career you'd like. You'll learn tactics for dealing with offenders, victims and others, procedures for managing risk, teamwork strategies and more.
You'll learn in your workplace, at your probation trust. You will have regular meetings with your assessor and will be assessed by being observed performing tasks or by presenting evidence of your work activities.
