HMP Nottingham is a busy Category B Local prison housing both sentenced and remand prisoners.
The Education Department works closely with its prison colleagues to deliver relevant short courses that help prepare learners for employment upon release. Courses include: English and Maths Functional Skills (Entry 1 to Level 2), ESOL, ICT, Art, Cookery, NVQ Catering, Warehousing, Interview Skills and Money Management, and Radio and Media.
In the department they believe the opportunity to gain skills and knowledge will help their learners to end their offending behaviour. They engage the hardest to reach learners and encourage them to take pride in their own education and self-development. As a department, they endeavour to inspire learners to achieve. This enthusiasm for learning and desire to help their learners has been reflected with the department receiving a grade 2 in a recent Ofsted inspection.
