Joining the National Probation Service

     

     

Upon finishing my Criminology degree I was a little perplexed as to what I should do next. Whilst I had no desire to join the Police or Prison Service I had been advised by two of my previous lecturers that a career in the Probation Service would be something I may be suited to. So I applied, and after completing three separate stages of the application process, I was a trainee PO.....

    APPLICATION PROCESS

DATE: 2003

 


Life as a Probation Officer

 

 

The traineeship consisted of a two year introduction to the Probation Service, which included work based learning, real time work and the completion of a degree within the two year period. The course was described as being intensive and extremely demanding - and it didn't disappoint! The course was split into two stages (representing a year per stage) and I have included all of the academic and work based learning undertaken.

This section outlines my time as a Probation Officer, a career that I have found both demanding and rewarding. My involvement with the Service comes at a time when it is under public and media scrutiny, yet for me the Service plays a vital and effective role within the Community Justice System.

The Probation Service - Information

 

 

 DATE: 2003 - 2013

(PRIOR TO TRANSFORMING REHABILITATION)

This section offers information on what the Probation Service has to offer (2006 - 2012). In my opinion the Service is more than equipped to meet the needs of managing risk within the community and protecting the public.....who needs contestability.

Transforming Rehabilitation

 

 

 DATE: 2013

In 2012/13 the Government announced that there would be changes to the way in which Probation Services were to be delivered across England and Wales. In essence - during this period of austerity the Government needed to save money - and so made the decision to dismmantle a hugely sucessful Public Service and farm as many of its offender services out to the Private and Voluntary sectors......and this was done without any forethought and in a very swift timeframe...As part of the staff seperation exercise I ended up remaining as an SPO with the National Probation Service (NPS), with many of my colleagues/friends being shipped out to CRC's, based primarily on the type of cases they were holding on one particular day. Please enter and read how the Probation Trusts were dismantled, and the delivery of probation services changed forever...
