CPD Certified Short Courses

Referral Order Panel Member Training


Hailed as a major step forward for Youth Justice Teams in the UK, panel volunteers can now be fully trained in live online classes that run regularly throughout the year.

Facilitated by experienced panel trainers closely involved in the development and testing of the 2018 YJB panel training update, the course frees teams from the burden of organising training themselves, and aids retention by allowing individual volunteers to be trained and added to rotas in a more timely manner.

If you have several volunteers to be trained, we can also deliver this package directly to your service at any time of year. The course will be tailored to your requirements and your panel members will be trained in live online classes using your own paperwork and processes. Please contact us for more details and to request a quote.
