Role play training

Synergy delivers bespoke role play training utilising experienced ex-prisoner actor facilitators to train criminal justice sector professionals. Their lived experience is invaluable, bringing unique insight and authenticity to training, offering participants opportunity to test and develop their skills with service users before entering the working environment. We work closely with partners to develop scenarios to suit specific requirements and often deliver training together. To date our partners include Community Rehabilitation Companies, law schools and HM Prison and Probation Service.

That was the most effective training I have had in 18 years’ experience.  I can’t imagine I will ever have better.

Synergy’s work has a magical quality – they transform training, making it real and alive. Their skillful role plays have helped our staff apply their knowledge and understanding in ways that simply wouldn’t have been possible in another medium
