Activity: Consultancy typesConsultancy

Description

Together with colleagues from the Scottish Centre for Crime and Justice Research I was commissioned to consider the feasibility of introducing a professional qualification for SPS staff. We visited seven prisons in Scotland and spoke with almost 200 members of staff at all levels. We wrote a report of some 11000 words discussing the issues arising from these encounters which has since been extensively deployed in the development of trainng and educational opportunities in SPS.
