We work with prisons across the UK and help offenders and ex-offenders learn new skills through vocational programmes such as NVQs.


Working with Prisons

We deliver in excess of 2,000 vocational and employability programmes a year UK-wide within the offender reform sector.

We recruit offenders whilst serving their sentences and interview them to identify the most appropriate qualification. We will discuss any skills shortages that learners may have and help our learners choose the subject area that will best support their learning and improve their skillset. NVQs are available in a broad choice of subject areas, click here to view the qualifications we offer.

Our team of dedicated regional Training Advisors will then deliver the specific NVQ programme. We will guide and support the learner through their programme prior to release.

Following their attainment of their vocational qualification(s) and subsequent release, we can help and support the ex-offenders into finding suitable employment.

Benefits to the Learner

Learners can obtain a new qualification and increase their skillset. This new qualification will allow them to gain confidence and develop their skills whilst working in the prison workshops and ultimately find a job, enhancing their experience in the world of work on release. Please read our success stories and our candidate testimonials which endorse this.

Benefits to You

The candidate can obtain or increase their skill set in a short time with an up to date nationally recognised qualification.
