Learning Zone

Welcome to the Learning Zone Training Needs Questionnaire. 

This questionnaire has been designed to help you identify your learning and development needs and some of the ways in which they can be met. It does this by asking you about the type of work you do, the kind of background knowledge that would be useful to you and the type of crime and disorder problems you deal with.

How to complete this questionnaire 
The questionnaire is broken down in to three sections:

  • Types of Crime and Disorder
    Looks at the types of crime and disorder problems you might be dealing with

  • Skills
    Asks about the activities you carry out at work

  • The Wider Picture
    Looks at general topics on crime reduction and criminology that can provide a useful background to your work.

Each section contains questions designed to help you identify where you require further information or learning. At the beginning of each section there is an introduction on how to complete it. When you have completed this questionnaire, the results page will show the type of learning and information you have requested, the frequency with which you complete certain tasks and a suggested order of priority for learning.
