New Insights Webinar: Plagiarism and the Professional as Learner: Pressures, Pitfalls and Prevention

There are several challenges that occur when learners are also members of the workforce of the organisation that is directly training them. Pressures from work can mean that time to study and to prepare and submit work for assessment can become squeezed, creating additional pressures for the learner which can show up in many ways. Throughout this webinar you will have the opportunity to hear from Mike Cunningham QPM who will be sharing his insights and experiences of over 30 years of policing and reflect on this important topic with reference to his time as Chief Executive of the College of Police.

Have your say on the future skills development and training needs of the UK workforce


“It’s vitally important that as many learners, centres, employers, and training providers participate in the national ‘Developing a Resilient Workforce’ survey to ensure a fair, well-rounded, and considered view of the future needs for training across key sectors in the UK. I am personally fascinated to find out, through the robust methodologies of Skills for Justice’s Research Division, what the post-pandemic learning and development needs are for people across a range of industries, and encourage anyone involved in skills or training to take part.”
