On Tuesday 28 January, Gabriel Amahwe, Executive Director of Probation at MTC, gave a lecture to first year Criminology students at Middlesex University.
The university, who we partner with, had over 50 students attend the lecture. Gabriel spoke about the end-to-end service user journey, from Through the Gate services to the completion of licenses. In a fluid conversation, he gave insight into the tasks practitioners face, and how they have to balance building a useful relationship with the service user against carrying out the sentence of the court.
In future, we will be working with Middlesex University to run partnership projects, helping inform their students as to how the justice system works to rehabilitate service users.
