  • They treated me like the person I could be, not the person I was.

    Kirsty, HMP Styal

    I was feeling at rock bottom – I was shown empathy and spoken to with dignity.

    Mark, HMP Winchester & West Hill

    One prison officer used to help me to do my NVQ level 2. She used to tell me education is power.

    Simon Eastwood, HMP Parc

    As a proud man I found it difficult to ask for help. My officer was able to read my mood just by looking at me.

    The Tartan Con, HMP Highpoint

    I was feeling lost. I didn’t know who I really was. A prison officer helped me to believe in myself.

    John, HMP Swansea

    The prison officer on my sentence was excellent. They were supportive and helpful.

    Michelle, HMP Bronzefield

    I was suffering from severe depression and he made me feel as though I was someone of value.

    Christopher, HMP Spring Hill

You’ll acquire valued and transferable leadership skills, and a master’s degree, and at the same time you’ll help prisoners to turn their lives around. Being an effective prison officer is about leading change by motivating, protecting and educating some of society’s most challenging and vulnerable people.
