Youth Offending Teams
Youth Offending Teams (YOTs) form an important part of the UK justice system, and Agencia has been pleased to be able to offer support to its local teams.
Service Level Agreements
For the Hull Youth Offending Team Agencia prepared a series of service level agreements with partner agencies to reflect the financial, human resources and service implications for each party of their work with the YOT.
The Hull Youth Offending Team commissioned Agencia to develop an implementation plan for their proposed Intensive Supervision and Surveillance Programme. The plan was submitted to the Youth Justice Board and was approved in its entirety for implementation.
Agencia continued to support the YOT in the implementation of the plan, including the preparation of job descriptions, development of procedures and protocols, and the development and delivery of training and education material for use by stakeholder agencies.
East Riding Away Day
As part of their on-going staff development programme, the East Riding of Yorkshire Youth Offending Team (YOT) asked Agencia to design and deliver an away day for all YOT staff. The purpose was to provide scope for reflection and celebration of recent achievements, and begin to consider the challenges for the future. Using a mix of presentations, team activities and exercises, the day aimed to increase motivation and awareness, and develop their readiness to embrace future challenges.
