Event description

Description

In response to Recommendation Four of the Coates Review of Education in Prison, Open Awards is developing a personal social development qualification targeted specifically at offender learners in collaboration with the OLASS community. We plan to make the qualifications available as Awards and Certificates at Entry 3 and Level 1 and it is currently being designed under the title of ‘Personal Improvement’. They will be based around the principals of safer custody which are a key priority across the custodial estate and will be available from Spring 2017.

This free event is specifically for tutors and education professionals who work with current or ex-offenders to come and find out more about the development and help us shape the content to ensure it truly meets the needs of learners and the sector.

In the meeting we will:

  1. Present and discuss the rationale for the qualification
  2. Review the structure of the qualification
  3. Review the draft unit content for the qualification across units such as:
  • Awareness of gangs
  • Coping with Change
  • Dealing with bullying
  • Dealing with debt
  • Equality and Diversity
  • Maintaining a healthy lifestyle
  • Managing Anger and Aggression
  • Mental Toughness
  • Radicalisation awareness
  • Resolving conflict with others
  • Restorative Justice
  • Sexual health and relationships
  • Stress management
  • Understanding the consequences substance misuse
  • Understanding the repercussion of actions on others

4. Identify any gaps

If you are unable to attend but would like to contribute to the development of this qualification, please contact Ben Rockliffe on ben.rockliffe@openawards.org.uk or 0151 494 4365
