Education, Training and Employment

You may have had poor experiences at school. You may be lacking the skills to find a job. You may have had work but lost it. You may need to improve your job prospects. One of the best ways of avoiding crime is to be in work. Our Education, Training and Employment officers are there to help you.

They will:

  • discuss your training and education situation with you and help you plan for what you need to do
  • give you advice on training courses
  • refer you to the organisations that can help you further
  • support you in getting the right training, skills courses and work placements
  • make sure you get help with job search, job applications and CVs

We can’t do this without you! Please make sure that you keep the appointments we arrange, and be quick to let us know if you need to rearrange, with a good reason.

You can get this help through your Community Order, or the courts may decide to make it an Activity Requirement in its own right. Either way, as an order of the court, you must treat it as everything else you are required to do, and make sure you stick to the rules.
