Working together the college and prison are committed to providing positive opportunities to enable the men in the establishment to reach their full potential and inspire them to end their offending behaviour. The staff in the Education Department work enthusiastically as a team to engage learners that are sometimes hard to reach, it is this dedication and enthusiasm that contributed to the grade 2 in the latest Ofsted inspection.
