Probation services officer progression
If you’re already a probation services officer (PSO) working in the Probation Service, you can apply for the Professional Qualification in Probation (PQiP) PSO progression scheme (when open). Talk to your line manager for more information, or visit your HMPPS intranet.
You’ll need to have at least 6 months effective service in your PSO role and a minimum level 3 qualification. A level 3 qualification is equivalent to an A-level or NVQ level 3, for example.
Other internal Ministry of Justice (MoJ) candidates
PQiP is open to all MoJ staff with a minimum level 5 qualification, which must include at least 120 credits attained at level 5.
Talk to your line manager for more information, or visit your HMPPS intranet.
