Duration: Two years, Part Time
The HNC in Criminology and Criminal Justice (in the Public Services) provides the learner with a detailed knowledge of the work and issues facing the different agencies within the Criminal Justice System, supported by the Wiltshire Criminal Justice Board.
The structure of the course aims to reflect the equal weighting that should be given to each of the Criminal Justice Agencies and also reflects the fact that these different agencies do not work in isolation but should be aware of the common goals and aims of a modern day Criminal Justice System. The content ensures that learners are introduced to the necessary underpinning knowledge of law, sociology and criminology.
Agencies will be paired with relevant modules allowing learners to demonstrate application of theory within a vocational context. Contact with individual services will provide learners with the necessary skills and competencies required to work within those organisations.
Assessment methods are varied to suit the particular needs of each unit, but will include essays, reports, seminars, case-studies and projects. There are no examinations.
The areas covered are likely to include:
- Introduction to Law and Justice
- Policing and Criminal Justice
- Criminal Law
- Technology and Forensic Investigation
- Victims and Witnesses
- Custodial Care
- Insight into Sociology
Please note: Modules and course content subject to change
This course is delivered at our Chippenham campus.
