Teaching and learning features include:* Chapter menus and summaries* Further reading* Glossary* Appendices Timely and relevant, Knowledge and the Probation Service: Raising standards for trainees, assessors and practitioners will stimulate and motivate trainees, offer food for thought for those involved in the planning and development of probation training, and will contribute to the wider debate about the nature of probation identity in these changing times for the service.
