Topic description

This industry project topic supports the development of reflective skills, crucial for advancing students’ learning and improving their awareness of the need to reflect. The theoretic underpinnings discuss the concepts of structural/cultural injustice – justice, which can help students to recognise and address underlying causes of harm and disadvantage in applied projects. The topic provides students with extensive support, is scaffolded and allows for participation of the industry to promote students to gain skills in critical reflection and forward planning. CJ agencies and other service providers will be involved in different ways, including by providing industry projects, and hands-on advice on potential careers. Through its theoretical underpinnings, industry focus and support of productive reflection the topic will stimulate students’ self-reflective ability so they can develop a career in criminal justice and cognate sectors.
