Publisher Description

Introduction The project to develop a consistent approach to probation training in Europe was given recent impetus by the Conference Permanente Europeenne de la Probation (CEP) conference in December 2009, in Agen, France on the subject of 'Recruitment and Training of Probation Officers in Europe' (the Agen conference). This article will start by outlining the drivers for adopting a consistent approach to the training of probation officers across Europe including the European Probation Rules, European Union framework decisions and the Stockholm programme. It will go on to identify potential difficulties and obstacles with some suggestions as to how these might be overcome. The article will conclude by arguing that an appropriate first step toward developing a European approach could be the development and adoption of subject benchmarks for European probation training.
