Clients of Skills for Justice work with us safe in the knowledge that we protect their data after we became ISO27001 certified. After many months of hard work to ensure our processes met the required standard, the Workforce Development Trust (our parent company) passed its information security audit by a UKAS Accredited Auditor.
This means that our Information Security Management System has achieved the required ISO27001 standard.

Ministry of Justice
The Skills for Justice team were invaluable to us to deliver this result. This required exceptional support and project management from the team to bring several organisations together working to the strictest of deadlines. Staff feel more valued and have greater transferable skills. We are confident that they will progress their careers in the sector.
Ambit helped us think about how to align core G4S values with the main areas of organisational life, so we are able to offer excellent support and opportunities to those we care for and get the best form our people through ongoing development and recognition of their achievements.
Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service
We feel valued as members with regular and worthwhile communication and visits.
Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Probation
Our project was about trying to bring more rigour in. Checking what skills everybody needs, and making sure we’ve supported them in getting those skills. The ambition in working with Skills for Justice was accreditation – to design a bespoke customised certificate of achievement in inspectorate skills.
The Skills for Justice Consultancy Experts helped us, but also allowed us to speak when we needed to change things. They completely understood the needs of the sector, but most importantly, they understood how to accommodate the learning requirements within the really restrictive environments that we work in.
