Programme facilitators (Kaikawe Hōtaka) run therapeutic programmes that are designed to help offenders understand the factors that led to their offending. They help offenders to take responsibility for their actions, motivate them to change their behaviour and teach them new skills which will help them lead crime-free lives.
Programmes are usually delivered in small groups but can involve working one-on-one with individuals. This requires planning, preparing and delivering a variety of programmes as well as monitoring the participants’ progress to make sure they are getting the most out of their sessions.
