Prison residents are provided with professional and impartial careers information, advice and guidance delivered by qualified careers advisers. A Personal Learning Plan (PLP) is produced for every resident of the prison, which identifies short, medium, and long-term skills and targets for the resident to achieve. This plan is influenced by the individual’s career aspirations and the opportunities for work in their local establishment.
