Day one focuses on what the participants did to merit their Award or Commendation, and what obstacles they had to overcome in the process.
The second and third days focus on how the Award Winners and Commendees can learn from and build on their achievements, and further develop their professional skills.
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’.
