Essex Probation

Education, Training and Employment

Many of our service users come to their Community Orders with few or no skills. Criminal convictions also decrease the likelihood of obtaining work – the very thing which helps prevent further criminality. We set out with our local partners to improve literacy, numeracy and practical trade skills, supporting offenders in accessing training courses, gaining qualifications and helping them with jobsearch. CV writing, interview preparation and job applications are also part of the brief.

Our Education, Training and Employment (ETE) Officers complete Information Advice and Guidance (IAG) sessions with individuals and work with them and their Responsible Officer to facilitate access into provision and support for those ETE needs they have identified. We develop strong relationships with other local organisations in the ETE field to provide offenders with as much information as possible about the services available to assist them.
