Career Prospects and Opportunities

The course may lead to a career in the UK criminal justice sector including the Police Service, Prison Services, Court Service, Probation Service, UK Border Agency or Youth Justice Services. Alternatively, the HND qualification may lead to a ‘top-up’ degree.

The Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx) has granted HND Criminal Justice students at Wiltshire College exemption for units required for the first stage of the CILEx qualifications. A Chartered Legal Executive lawyer specialises in a particular area of law, and has trained to the same standard as a solicitor in that area. Students from the HND course are exempt from three of the five units of the Level 3 Certificate in Law and Practice.
