Exploring an alternative workforce

Leadership conversation on skills and recruiting an alternative workforce.

Sponsored by G4S

Wales and the UK are suffering a skills and workforce shortage. HM Parc Prison in Bridgend has an active skills and employability programme for inmates.

Parc Prison actively support ex-offenders into roles across various sectors, building on the skills gained whilst incarcerated. Data shows that 80% of prisoners who have gone through one of the dedicated programmes do not re-offend. With reportedly a shortage of as many as a million workers in the UK, could employing ex-offenders bridge this gap?  

Hear from a panel of speakers hosted by Kate Carr – Chair of the employment board at Cardiff prison.  

The panel will discuss the opportunities, benefits and support available.
