Employment and Skills for offenders

Employment and SkillsWe work with a number of training services and colleges to equip offenders under our supervision with the skills needed to gain employment.

 

Not being able to get a job or sustain employment is a key factor that drives offenders to crime.  Evidence suggests that offenders who gain sustained employment are far less likely to re-offend than those without a job.
 
We help offenders with key skills such as literacy and numeracy, and give them the opportunity to work towards NVQ awards that will be recognised within their chosen industry.
 
Alongside the training provided to offenders, we also help them into employment.  We work with employers to match their vacancies with suitable offenders under our supervision – and assist the offenders further offering advice and guidance on things such as CV writing and interview techniques.
 
All this helps offenders into employment and break the cycle of re-offending.
