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
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.
