Continuous Professional Development

Open training courses for probation staff.

The Learning and Development team at LAURUS have been looking at how we can best support learning in the sector during this time.
We have been making many of our learning materials and our courses available digitally and have effectively delivered our blended learning to meet the needs of the sector.
We have the following courses in September 2020 and October 2020 which are being run as open events for staff from any organisation:

  • Basic Risk & OASys
  • SARA Version 2
  • Effective Engagement Skills
  • Hate Crime & OASys

Probation reoffending rates fall

Latest (July 2016) official MoJ reoffending statistics show drop in reoffending rates for those supervised by probation service.

Who are the new team at the Moj?

Overall, this is a young and inexperienced ministerial team under the leadership of a young and inexperienced Justice Secretary. We will have to wait and see whether this means they can bring a fresh perspective or are vulnerable to being out-manoeuvred by vested interests.
