Training, Learning and Development

Does your organisation work in the justice sector?

Are you a public or 3rd sector provider who offers support and services to individuals?  If so, your staff could benefit from improving their skills in the following areas:

  • Risk assessment, risk management and public protection awareness.
  • Engaging and communicating effectively with service users and partnership organisations in a range of settings.
  • Representing your organisation in person or through reports in settings such as courts or formal hearings.

LAURUS has extensive experience of delivering training and development activity to Probation and other Justice Sector partners.  In our planning, design and delivery we are committed to the use of academic research to support our methods.  With this in mind we aim to design our courses to optimise the formation of memory using AGES to reinforce content and make learning stick.

A – ATTENTION: creating maximum attention and novelty in our learning experiences; using video case studies with real life content

G – GENERATION: linking learning to realistic scenarios to generate participant ownership; asking participants to apply their own skills and experience to course content

E – EMOTIONS: providing a supportive and fun environment and providing positive feedback; reinforcing our core value of maintaining a sense of fun

S – SPACING: utilising testing and endeavouring to space inputs across learning events; using pre-reading, quizzes, exploration and link work
