Attendance at this conference will be Certificated by the Probation Institute for Continuous Professional Development.
This annual conference is a leading opportunity for attendees across the rehabilitation sector to take stock of current developments, share good practice and the latest research, and to look at changing ways the probation services and partners can meet the requirements of successful rehabilitation.
Speakers and workshops will address sentencing, challenges facing probation services and partner organisations, new developments towards reducing reoffending and the future of probation. They will focus on innovative practice, research outcomes, professional development and ways in which organisations can collaborate better across the NPS, the CRCs and voluntary sector partners. Interactive workshops will offer opportunities to discuss what is working well, what research can tell us and how best to support practitioners.
This is a targeted conference on probation, rehabilitation and resettlement with those most likely to benefit from this event including leaders, managers and practitioners from HMPPS, CRCs, the Third Sector and the wider criminal justice including police and sentencers. We anticipate that key themes will be raised through inputs and the very important discussion opportunities for attendees will include:
– Strengthening Probation, Building Confidence;
– New resources available to address the challenges facing probation;
– Possible changes to short term sentencing;
– Electronic monitoring;
– Progress on the development of a coherent professional workforce across probation, rehabilitation and resettlement services;
– Developments following the announcement of the proposed future model for probation.
