Employment details Referral Order Worker Bedfordshire Youth Offending Service
Impact of degree on career choice and current opportunities My responsibility is best described as probation for under-18s - preventing them from re-offending through statutory court orders; balancing welfare with public protection. This requires the use of research, writing, reporting, presentation, networking and interpersonal skills which I gained from my course.
Advice to current students I would advise anyone wishing to work with offenders to have patience, resilience, sympathy and desire to produce the best outcome for young people.
