We provide excellent training for people who work with offenders


We bring the training to you

This means that, in terms of effectiveness, you immediately have a ‘core group’ of staff trained in one approach. Therefore you have a group pulling in one direction and able to encourage each other pulling in that direction. In terms of cost, by having the tutor come to you, you do away with a multitude of travelling and overnight accommodation expenses which have no baring on staff development.

Evidence-based and relevant

‘WhatWorksWithOffenders’ targets the approaches that are shown to have the most effect when working with offenders. We then put together courses that combine the theory and practice in a way that is easy to grasp and easy to apply safely. Finally we employed experienced and talented psychologists to deliver the courses and add their unique input.

Morale boosting

WhatWorksWithOffenders courses are absolutely uncompromising in terms of quality. But that does not mean they are expensive. Far from it, they are priced for the helping professionals rather than the commercial market, which means you can have the best of both worlds: training of uncompromised quality and realistic prices.

Integrated courses

Importantly, the courses provided by WhatWorksWithOffenders mesh with one another. Hence by attending these courses you acquire a genuine development of expertise in staff rather than an unhelpful acquisition of competing ideas.

Who should attend:

These courses are suitable for all those professionals working in forensic settings such as secure Health Service or Home Office establishments, independent secure facilities, and others. Relevant professionals include: social workers, psychologists, probation officers, prison officers, psychiatric nurses, occupational therapists and others.
