Did you know...

Did you know that there are over 10.5 million people with a criminal record on the Police National Computer database, with approximately 2.25 million youth criminal records being disclosed? However, people with convictions are the least likely ‘disadvantaged group’ to be employed, go in to volunteering or education. Young people especially face significant challenges, different to those over 18, if they have a criminal conviction.


This course is designed for any practitioner dealing with both young people or adults who have a criminal record. It aims to offer advice, guidance and help for you to support them going forward, typically into education, volunteering or employment. It is informative, interactive and empowering – designed to offer a level of practical knowledge, develop your skills and present resources that can be used over and over again.
