Dan Skelton HMP Portland

Dan Skelton our curriculum manager at HMP Portland highlighted how key an event like this is for our learners. It was also a great opportunity to showcase our amazing facilities and courses to employers.

A day like today couldn’t happen without the support of our employer partners, so an enormous thanks to Wessex Water, Kier Group, Lancer Scott Ltd, T Clarke Willmott Dixon, Abatec Recruitment, AmeyBriggs. We hope they enjoyed their day as much as our learners valued the opportunity.

We cannot wait to welcome them back to HMP Portland and our other prisons in the southwest.
