Youth Justice Practitioner Apprenticeship Standard

The Youth Justice Practitioner Standard was developed to provide a recognised and robust pathway for those supporting young people throughout the justice sector. It provides a broad and detailed curriculum that balances legislative knowledge, practical skills associated with engagement, relationship management and planning, as well as development of softer skills and behaviours that are essential within this niche area of employment.

At Intelligencia Training, we fully evaluate all apprentices prior to induction to programme and develop a pathway that is bespoke to each individual, being relevant to both sector and their organisation. With a huge breadth of experience, whilst working in the justice, security, intelligence and investigative sectors, our staff are well placed to deliver bespoke programmes to Youth Justice Practitioners and have value added modules within the curriculum that ensure capable and well rounded practitioners

The typical training period for the learners on our Youth Justice Practitioner Apprenticeship is 18-22 months and consists of classroom/outdoor based delivery sessions on either our premises or client sites as desired. We utilise technology for delivery as well as live actors and role relevant locations to enhance the learning experience.

Specific modules for study are defined within employer scoping and learner skill scan.
