BTEC Level 1 - Award in Anti-Social Behavior Awareness

This Pearson SRF BTEC Level 1 Award in Anti-Social Behaviour Awareness is for learners who work in community safety or deal with community safety/anti-social behavioural issues.

It gives learners the opportunity to:

  • develop knowledge about what constitutes Anti- Social Behaviour
  • develop knowledge to identify of vulnerable victims
  • develop skills in recording and referring anti-social behaviour incidents

The ability to successfully address antisocial-behaviour requires: an awareness of what anti-social behaviour is and how differing forms are defined; the impact that the various forms have on the lives of people affected by it; and how to record it once it has come to their attention. This unit will provide learners with knowledge of: the various defined forms of anti-social behaviour; how to identify vulnerable victims; and how to record anti-social behaviour so that an appropriate response can be generated to deal with it. It is an essential requirement that learners will be tasked to complete 3 hours of pre-reading and attend 7 hours of taught learning. In this unit the learners will explore a common definition of antisocial behaviour and guidance as to how it is to be interpreted and also the opportunity to investigate three sub categories of anti-social behaviour, being nuisance, environmental and targeted anti-social behaviour will be identified and explained. Knowledge of how to identify vulnerable victims will be taught together with the 3 broad factors that make victims at higher risk; being history, vulnerability & support. The course will provide knowledge of the importance of accurate record keeping and appropriate referrals.
