About HMPYOI Winchester:

HMP/YOI Winchester is a busy Category B/C Local prison housing both sentenced and remand prisoners from the age of 18. The Education Department delivers relevant short courses that help prepare learners for employment upon release in three different Education areas in the prison. Courses include: English and Maths Functional Skills (Entry 1 to Level 2), ESOL, ICT, Art, Cookery, Employability Skills, and Barbering. We also work closely with our prison colleagues to provide embedded Employability skills in the prison workshops for Carpentry, Recycling, Textiles and Enterprise Services. The Education department has recently started working with external employers to provide employment opportunities upon release to the workers in the main prison kitchen who engage in the Hospitality and Catering Academy programme provided by the College in partnership with Premier Inn and also those keen to show their potential through a fast track employment course linked to Timpsons. This is a model which we hope to further expand in the future.

In the department we believe the opportunity to gain skills and knowledge will help our learners to end their offending behaviour. We engage the hardest to reach learners and encourage them to take pride in their own education and self-development. As a department, we endeavour to inspire learners to achieve.
