From the Back Cover:

This book is designed to help trainee probation officers with the Diploma in Probation Studies, especially with the NVQ elements and making the link to the degree programme in probation. Written by Philip Whitehead and Jamie Thompson, each with over 25 years′ experience of the probation service, the book will also be valuable to those assessing and managing trainees.

Opening with an historical overview of training in probation, the book moves on to examine aspects of the NVQ, report writing, information for Practice Development Assessors, how to put training into practice once qualified, and beyond the codification of knowledge to vocational excellence as a probation officer.

Teaching and learning features include:

  • chapter menus and summaries
  • further reading
  • glossary
  • appendices
Timely and relevant, Knowledge and the Probation Service 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.
