Reflective Practice at the Scottish Prison Service

Morrison, Katrina



This paper discusses the role of reflective practice within the training for Scottish Prison Service (SPS) officers and managers, delivered by the Scottish Prison Service College. This paper does not claim to promote best practice in Work Based Learning (WBL) and reflective practice, but rather explores opportunities for this important practice to become more routine and imbedded in the Service as it seeks to support workforce development across the prison estate. This paper will begin by discussing the importance of reflection in work based learning before outlining current examples of reflective practice in SPS College training. The paper will conclude with some implications and recommendations for the future.
