Security and Offender Management (Top-Up)

Course summary

Its aim is to address the skills and knowledge gap faced by the private and voluntary sectors tendering for and delivering these services. This is a unique programme where you will not only learn about the significance of Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service (HMPPS) but also gain an understanding of how the service, working together with the police, ensures public protection and security. This includes the management of violent, sexual and mentally disordered offenders both within the custodial environment and the community, and the provision of interventions to reduce re-offending and lower recidivism rates. This is a full-time course with around two days per week scheduled for taught sessions including lectures and seminars. Therefore it is expected that you will use the remainder of the time for your independent study and work placement. The programme learning outcomes seek to improve your employability by developing your critical thinking and analytical skills, your scholarship, and your intellectual skills – all of which are transferable. We encourage a focus on independent learning to solve real-life projects. These skills will equip you for a wide range of careers in the security and offender management industry. The course will run with a minimum of eight students. This course is delivered at the Broomfield Hall campus on two days per week. It is regulated by the OfS and the qualification is awarded by the University of Derby.
