In October 2013, CEP (European Organisation for Probation) will launch the first World Congress on Probation (WCP). The Congress is a new initiative to bring together practitioners and those with an interest in probation and community justice from across the globe to share their knowledge and experience. The Congress will provide participants with the opportunity to examine and discuss new and changing probation practices, with the overarching principle of changing lives and behaviours.
The Congress will be run in partnership with the National Offender Management Service, the Probation Chiefs Association, London Probation Trust, and West Yorkshire Probation Trust and will take place at the Queen Elizabeth Conference Centre in London, UK – an excellent location to receive guests from around the world.
8-10 October 2013, London, UK
Important note: Deadline for registration is 9 September 2013!
World Congress on Probation
The PCA Annual conference is a two day event open to all PCA members and external stakeholders. There is a mixture of plenary sessions and workshops that address the key issues faced by probation and offers an opportunity to hear about the work of the PCA and other trusts. The conference also presents an important opportunity for probation staff and stakeholders to meet and share experiences and best practice.
On 14th-15th March 2013, the PCA will be hosting its annual conference ‘leading the probation profession through change’, at the Marriott Hotel in Meriden, Birmingham. The PCA looks forward to greeting over 200 delegates from the senior management of probation and other core stakeholders, for what will be an extremely timely and important event in light of the Government’s reform plans outlined in the ‘transforming rehabilitation’ consultation.
