The Development Programme, which is open to all our Award Winners and Commendees, helps participants to build on their achievements and supports their on-going professional development.
The first part of the programme is a three day taught course on ‘Developing Good Practice in Correctional Settings’.
Day one focuses on what the participants did to merit their Award or Commendation, and what obstacles they had to overcome in the process.
As part of the Programme, we encourage participants to write up the achievements for which they received their Award or Commendation, to add to the good-practice.net library.
Programme participants are also offered the chance to submit two short pieces of coursework, towards a level three, NCFE-accredited qualification, entitled: ‘Developing Good Practice in Correctional Settings’.
In addition, all those who take part in the programme are offered optional one-to-one coaching and support sessions, focusing on particular aspects of their professional development.
