Martin Murray, Rachel Riley and Meghan Greenbank represented the National Probation Service when they gave an inspirational talk to Public Services students about the various career paths surrounding the managing of offenders in the community and in prisons. The students learned about what the Probation Service does and the work that they do to assist offenders in what is often the forgotten service, but yet can be very rewarding.

Advice for students wanting to join the Service as a Probation Officer was to study for a Degree preferably criminology, sociology and psychology, whilst an alternative career route would be to start as a Probation Service Officer and progress via promotion.

Bridget Slater, Public Services Tutor said, ‘It is really important that our students understand the full range of career opportunities open to them. We were really pleased to welcome the National Probation Service and to learn about the benefits as well as the challenges of training to be a Probation Officer.”
