The probation service as part of NOMS in England and Wales: fit for purpose?
A collaborative piece of work, to which the author contributed most of the first draft. The intended audience is practitioners and managers within the Probation Service/NOMS, and students undertaking practice training and criminology degrees. The book is recently published, and NOMS has now awarded DMU a tender for the development of a new curriculum and qualification framework for staff within the offender management model; some of the ideas and themes within this chapter, which address themselves specifically to the need for a holistic national training framework within the national qualifications framework, will be used in this process of development.
