Learning & Development

Learning & Development

Resolve offer a range of courses for frontline practitioners, from entry-level through to specialist masterclasses. We believe the use of real case study examples and topical issues give delegates a solid grounding in how best to respond to ASB and community safety situations. Using national experts as course leaders, our training programme enables delegates to gain practical learning to support day-to-day roles as well as developing key competencies.

Continuing professional development in the community safety sector is crucial to maintaining personal competence and ensuring services are effective and efficient. Our CPD accredited courses attract CPD hours that can go towards a personal and professional development plan.

Resolve strive to professionalise the sector and through Community Safety Professionals Training Ltd (CSPT), our registered BTEC centre, we provide professional community safety qualifications.
Our BTEC is bespoke to ensure it is relevant, drawing upon current examples and best practice. Each module is designed to build on the credibility community safety professionals need and to support them to meet the increasing demands of them at every stage in their career. Check out our Community Safety Professionals Training Ltd (CSPT) website for more information and to book on BTEC courses.

  • I would recommend Resolve’s antisocial behaviour Quality Assurance Framework (QAF) as a fantastic way to have an independent refresh of your ASB service to ensure community safety partnerships are delivering a high standard of victim care.

  • The exercise was really worthwhile, and I would recommend it to any organisation wishing to ensure they are providing a high-quality approach (which satisfies regulatory standards) to their customers when managing cases of antisocial behaviour.
    A huge thank you goes to Resolve who worked step by step through this process with us.

  • Our old model was different in each region and business area, having a slightly different approach to investigation, recording and monitoring. By harmonising the approach and creating a Community Safety Hub bringing together ASB, domestic abuse, hate crime and community cohesion, Resolve is helping Riverside deliver excellence to its customers.
