Post Graduate Certificate

Through our partnership with the University of Worcester we have developed a Post Graduate Certificate called 'Enhancing Professional Practice: Working with Offenders'. 

This is a professional development programme for practitioners working with offenders - including those in probation, prison service and youth justice.  The programme aims to up-skill practitioners through post graduate study, enabling them to advance their careers, achieve high levels of performance and enhance ethical decision making in relation to the priority areas identified by the Trust including:

  • Assessment of individual's mental health and well being

  • Promoting social justice

  • Safeguarding individuals at risk of harm in the context of domestic abuse

The programme is studied through intensive block periods normally over weekends per semester, one module per semester for three semesters.  The teaching periods are supported through electronic communication and the personal academic tutoring system.  The three inter-disciplinary modules studied are:

  • The psychology of mental health

  • Safeguarding adults, children and young people in the context of domestic abuse

  • Managing diversity
