These qualifications have been developed with the National Probation Service and Community Rehabilitation Companies (CRCs).
The main objective of the qualification is to provide the underpinning knowledge and skills required by those working in the probation sector. It provides career development to staff who have some contact with service users but whose role does not cover all the competences of the Level 3 Diploma in Probation Practice. It is envisaged that this qualification will be suitable for a range of roles across the National Probation Service and Community Rehabilitation Companies, for example Probation Case Administration, Community Payback or Approved Premises night wardens.
