HM Prison Stafford is a Category C National Sex Offender hub housing prisoners from across England and Wales.

The Education department works in partnership with the prison to deliver provision to support prisoners as they prepare for release. As well as delivery in the main Education and Vocational Training Department, courses are offered in Workshops and Kitchens, as well as Functional Skills outreach as required.

Courses continually delivered: Performance Manufacturing Operations, Bricklaying, Plastering, Painting and Decorating, Carpentry, Catering and hospitality, Business Venture, Mentoring, Graphic Design, ITQ/ICT, ESOL and Functional Skills English and Maths. Furthermore some courses are available to run as required and include: Waste management, Health and Safety, Employability skills and customer service.

The education team in HMP Stafford are highly motivated and take pride in their learners success. They work hard to support learners, encourage engagement from reluctant prisoners and aim to offer potential employment opportunities upon release through relevant and up-to-date qualifications. They are a flexible and adaptable team who work in partnership with their prison colleagues to ensure the journey through education is as safe and enjoyable as possible. The dedication of the education team in achieving these ambitions, as well as the expectation of high standards and the drive for continued improvement has been recently rewarded with a Grade 2 by Ofsted.
