One-day workshop for practitioners.

One of the most useful training sessions I have done. I would make this course mandatory for all client advisers.

Well worth the 8-hour round-trip from Devon! Very informative and inclusive.

Are you up-to-date with criminal record disclosure legislation?

Do you feel confident advising your clients with criminal records on exactly what they need to disclose and the best way to do so?

The Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (ROA) has changed for the first time in 40 years. In addition, a new filtering system removing certain cautions and convictions from DBS certificates was introduced last year. Correctly advising your clients on their rights and responsibilities when disclosing criminal records will help to increase their chances of securing employment.

Who it’s for

We work with front-line practitioners and advisers to increase their confidence to support people with criminal records into employment, education and training.

What you’ll learn

On this one-day workshop you will:

  • understand how to apply the ROA, the ROA Exceptions Order and advise your clients on when their convictions may become spent and/or eligible for filtering
  • learn about the impact of criminal records on education and employment options
  • understand exactly what your clients need to disclose and in which circumstances
  • improve your confidence in helping them to prepare for positive disclosure.
