Apprenticeship

The Antisocial Behaviour & Community Safety Officer Apprenticeship

Social Housing Providers, Local Authorities and the Police are the principal agencies that employ officers to respond to and address reports of ASB & Community safety issues. The role requires many diverse skills as each day is a different one working with various partners, sectors & communities to find solutions.

Our training programme develops officers to ensure they meet the required knowledge, skills & behaviours for the role and give them the confidence to flourish in the sector.

The general purpose of this occupation is to investigate reports of anti-social behaviour (ASB) & community safety issues, to deliver informal and formal resolutions to the problems, to explore prevention & diversionary solutions, to work effectively with partner & enforcement agencies, to support victims & witnesses, and where appropriate, vulnerable perpetrators.

    EPA - End Point Assessment

    After the Employer, Learner and Resolve agree that the Learner has gained the necessary knowledge, skills and behaviours, this will trigger the End Point Assessment. This is conducted by an independent body and is graded with either a pass, distinction, or fail. The EPA Organisation we work with is SFJ Awards https://sfjawards.com/

    The EPA includes a detailed case report and presentation with questioning as well as simulated interview scenarios.
