Penny Bassett

I was first introduced to Protective Behaviours (PBs) in 1992 when I was working for Oxfordshire Probation Service (OPS). During the 16 years I worked in OPS I had a variety of jobs helping people realise their potential and keep themselves safe and out of trouble. I found PBs so helpful in my work, as well as personally, that I went on to become a PBUK Accredited Trainer in September 1997.

Since then I have offered PBs training sessions in educational, criminal justice and multi-agency settings throughout the UK. I also offer individual PBs sessions and often work with victims of violence. For more information visit www.pennybassett.com

In 1998 I was asked to deliver some PBs on a peer mentoring course at a secondary school in Hemel Hemsted. From there I went on to develop my own Peer Mentoring course which is based on the PBs Process. I have really loved  working in primary and secondary schools training pupils to be peer mentors and, ultimately, responsible citizens.

I am also interested in craft and teach a variety of them in many different settings – drug rehabilitation centres, prisons, learning disability and physical disability day centres, lifelong learning groups and youth clubs.

I have been involved with Protective Behaviours in my role as a Probation Officer since 1997. Like Penny I found the principles so useful that I trained to become  a PBUK Accredited Trainer in 2005.

I work part time as a Probation Officer in a Substance Misuse Team and the other part  as a freelance trainer. I have facilitated many Probation Service groupwork programmes and am familiar with many aspects of the criminal justice system.

I also offer group training sessions in Protective Behaviours (PBs) in educational, criminal justice and multi-agency settings

Since the beginning of 2007 we have been co-facilitating a series of one week programmes for prisoners in HMP Woodhill based on PBs .

We are based in Oxford and are happy to travel anywhere.
