University courses provide introduction to interpreting for bilinguals
Professor Carol Hedderman and Dr Rob Mawby (with Anne Worrall from Keele University) have contributed separate articles to a special issue of the British Journal of Community Justice which has been published this week.
The special issue focuses on the Government’s policies to restructure the framework for supervising offenders in the community, which includes changing the role of the probation service, increasing the role of private and voluntary organisations and introducing the practice of payment by results.
Carol’s article examines the ‘Payment by Results’ model and questions whether it can deliver a reduction in re-offending, while Rob and Anne argue that the Government’s proposals ironically champion the worth of the probation service, while at the same time threatening to undermine its core strengths.
