Case study – David – “As an ex-offender, I thought I had a good grasp”
David is a project manager of a charity based in London. He booked himself on one of our one-day criminal record disclosure courses as he provides advice to people with criminal records.
Afterwards, he sent us this feedback:
“I had to write in and let you know how I appreciate the criminal record disclosure training I attended earlier this year and how it’s improved the information I can provide my clients regarding their criminal convictions.
As an ex-offender myself, I have always had to disclose my convictions due to my job role (working with vulnerable adults). I thought I had a good grasp on the ROA 1974 until I attended the training.
The amount of new information I learned on the day was extensive and extremely thorough. It was presented very clearly and you made some difficult parts easy to understand. I can honestly say that I normally struggle in this type of environment but found the day fly by.
I thoroughly recommend service providers who work with ex-offenders to attend this training day as we owe it to the people we work with to provide accurate and up to date information.”
