Successful applicants agree to disseminate the findings of their bursary project through a written report and its presentation at the Rhodes FST Presentation Evening
The Report becomes a public record of the project and can be written in a variety of styles and content that best suits the Author'(s) approach to the project. We will provide support and assistance to ensure that you are able to do justice to your experience. Some reports are relatively academic whilst others concentrate of the experience and learning from the project. The Report can form the basis of the presentation and after the presentation evening , it will be placed on the RhodesFST website.
Colleagues in LJMU's School of Justice can provide a range of academic and research ideas/guidance and expertise as well as potential contacts. Colleagues from the Probation Journal Editorial Board will also assist individual scholars who wish to consider publication in the Journal and related publications.
Each year a Rhodes Presentation evening is organised, usually in the Baronial Hall at Cheetham's School of Music. It is a relaxed and relatively informal event where interested members of the public can join colleagues from the criminal and community justice communities.
We usually invite a guest speaker and following their contribution, scholars make their presentation (usually a maximum of 30 minutes). We appreciate that this can be daunting but the Honorary Secretary and Trustees will provide support including the opportunity for a dry run before the evening
As Civil Servants, All staff employed by the Probation Serice are bound by the Civil Service Code and it is the individual's responsibilty to clear the contents of their report and public lecture with their employer.
