Why Volunteering Supports Your Crime and Criminal Justice Career

Why Volunteering Supports Your Crime and Criminal Justice Career

Do you want to join the Police Service? Maybe you are considering a role in the UK Border Force or Probation Service? There are many careers to consider that require an understanding of Crime and Criminal Justice.

The best way to gain the information you need is to study for a BA (Hons) Crime and Criminal Justice degree from the University of Bolton. Why here? Because this degree offers a careful balance of theory-based learning and practical experience through volunteer opportunities in various criminal justice system sectors.  

Why is Volunteering and Practical Experience Important?

Practical experience enables you to put your theoretical knowledge into practice. You gain first-hand experience from professionals that undertake their duties every day. You gain opportunities to ask questions, think on your feet, and develop strategies for different situations.

Crime and Criminal Justice is an ever-changing field; regardless of which specialism you choose, you will need to learn steadfastness and resilience. These are just two skills you gain through practical volunteer experience.

Spending time with professionals in the field also helps you to choose the right path for you. Whether you are interested in the probation service, victim support or the police service, spending time on the ground helps ensure that it is the right career path for you.
