star this property answer text <p /> <p>The assessment of magistrates’ competence is a matter for the local Bench Training and Development Committee (BDTC), which reports to the advisory committee for the local justice area. Where the BDTC has concluded that a magistrate has failed, over a period of time, to reach the required standard the advisory committee may make a recommendation to the Lord Chancellor and the Lord Chief Justice that the magistrate should be removed from office.</p><p> </p><p>The process for removing a magistrate on such a basis is managed by the Judicial Conduct Investigations Office. One magistrate has been removed from the magistracy during the last year for failing to maintain the required competences.</p><p> </p><p>Magistrates are appraised on their performance once every three years for each jurisdiction (adult court, family court, youth court) in which they sit. Appraisals are carried out locally by trained appraisers in line with a nationally approved framework. On account of the three-yearly cycle, roughly a third of the approximately 21,000 magistrates in England and Wales could expect to undergo appraisal in any given year.</p>

star this property answer text <p /> <p>The responsibility for the training of Magistrates lies with the Lord Chief Justice as head of the judiciary and is exercised through the Judicial College.</p><p> </p><p>In May 2009, the former Judicial Studies Board set out guidance on the status of training and on attendance at training events by magistrates. There are three categories of training: 1) compulsory 2) essential and 3) desirable. Compulsory training arises out of the s.10 (4) Courts Act 2003 which sets out where induction training must take place. Essential training provides consolidation and continuation training and also “specific issues training”. The latter is where major legislative or procedural changes take place which magistrates are expected to be familiar with and where attendance at training events will be expected. Desirable training is what is provided beyond the compulsory and essential elements and the full training delivery programme is determined locally by each Magistrates Area Training Committee taking in to account local training needs.</p><p> </p><p>Under the Protocol for the National Minimum Training provision for Magistrates, HMCTS must provide the resources for the delivery of all compulsory and essential training identified in each MATC Training Plan. The MATC will prioritise the delivery of desirable training from any additional training funds that may be available.</p><p>Each (MATC) provides a return to the Judicial College on their activities for the year. The returns show that all compulsory and essential training has been completed but it is not possible to extract from the returns the total number of magistrates who attended “desirable” training during 2013/14 in accordance with the Judicial College definition. The range of “desirable” training events covered overall is as follows:</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>Advisory Training,</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Applications, Road Traffic &amp; Effective Questioning in Court training</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Appraisal Continuation</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Appraiser Panel Bite Size training</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Appraiser Refresher</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Allocation Training and Mental Health Presentation</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>BTDC Interviewing</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>BTDC New Member Training</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Case Management/Adjournment Training</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Community Orders and Suspended Sentences</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Community Orders and Suspended Sentences/update on the role of LA</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Crown Court Sitting</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Crown Court Training</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Dealing with young and vulnerable people in court</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Presentation on Access to Substance Misuse Treatment within DRR &amp; ATR Orders</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Refresher Training covering LASPO , Allocation, Freeman of the land, &amp; Case Management</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Fines Enforcement Training</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Focus on Fairness</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Follow up session - New JPs</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Locally Identified Training Need - Metal Theft Training</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Local Training Conferences</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Loopholes in Road Traffic Law</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>MA AGM &amp; Annual Training Event</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Magistrates' Association Training Conferences</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Mentor Continuation Training</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Mentor Development</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Prison Visit for core training</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Probation Projects &amp; Restorative Justice Training Event</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Probation Training Day</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Refresher Appraiser Training</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Restorative Justice</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Road Traffic Act</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Road Traffic Special Reasons and Exceptional Hardship</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Role Play Session for Trainee Chairmen</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Sentencer Engagement Events</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Special Appeals Panel</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Speech, Language Communication Needs Workshop</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Online training - Mental Health and learning Disabilities in criminal courts</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Search Warrant Training</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Speeding</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>TDC Member Training</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>TDC New Member Training</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>TDC Recruitment &amp; Selection Training</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Youth Offending Service events</p></td></tr></tbody></table>
