that there are over 10.5 million people with a criminal record on the Police National Computer database, but only 8% of people that receive a conviction end up going to prison?
Yet there are over 1.2 million individuals that receive a conviction every single year. However, people with convictions are the least likely ‘disadvantaged group’ to be employed – only 12% of employers have knowingly employed a person with a conviction in the last three years.
This presents a significant challenge to anyone supporting people who have a criminal conviction.
This course is designed for any practitioner dealing with people who have a criminal record. It aims to offer advice, guidance and help for you to support them going forward, typically into education or employment. It is informative, interactive and empowering – designed to offer a level of knowledge and resources that can be used over and over again.
Participants will understand:
- Types of criminal record checks and what they tell you.
- The Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974.
- How people can find out about their criminal record.
- When is a conviction spent.
- Standard & enhanced DBS checks.
- What do individuals need to disclose?
- Disclosing to employers
- Where to go for support, guidance and further information.
- Convictions as a USP – using the rehabilitation journey.
Refreshments and a light lunch will be provided.
