Having read law at the University of Northampton, Tim went on to train as a Probation Officer gaining a degree Community Justice from the University of Birmingham and Diploma in Probation Studies (working with offending behaviour) through the Home Office Skills for Justice programme. He worked for the Probation Service for nine and a half years and gained a significant amount of experience of engaging offenders within a face to face supervision context and offender groupwork programme setting. Over the course of his career as a Probation Officer, Tim worked within a number of specialist teams including Community Supervision, Prolific and Priority Offenders (PPO’s) and the Crown and Magistrates’ Courts.
Tim also undertook two secondments within the counter-terrorism arena, firstly to the National Policing Improvement Agency (NPIA) developing and delivering awareness raising packages to staff across the public sector and latterly to the East Midlands Community Contact Unit (EMCCU) working with the practical outworking of the ‘Prevent’ strand of the HM Government Counter-Terrorism Strategy (CONTEST). This required him to engage with strategic and frontline practitioners from across the public sector to help them identify and reach individuals who may be vulnerable to radicalisation and violent extremism in order to implement targeted interventions.
In a youthwork setting, Tim was the national Project Manager for a creative and innovative youth empowerment and leadership development scheme within the performing arts arena. He has also undertaken a range voluntary roles, such as co-ordinating youth workers, managing activity and residential programmes, and engaging young people and adults from a variety of different backgrounds. A keen musician himself, Tim also has experience of being a music teacher in both a secondary school setting and on a peripatetic basis.
