I really loved coming along and seeing more about how you guys operate and have a clear impact on the guys you are working with.

I was thoroughly impressed with both the would-be candidates I interviewed and wish them all the best in their future job search.

Mock Interviewer

Employer Visit:

If you are part of a business that is open to employing people with a criminal record please visit the course to talk about what you do and to inspire a new group of trainees. Employer sessions are motivating afternoons when we see trainees begin to believe that securing employment with a reputable employer really is possible.

CV Session:

A professional CV is essential to securing a job on release. Volunteers join us in prison to help trainees construct their CVs. This is a rewarding session which encourages the trainees to consider their key skills and strengths and plays a key role in building their confidence.

Mock Interview:

Mock interviews are a highlight of the StandOut course. Volunteer with us as a mock interviewer and see first hand the inspirational difference you can make!

Graduation:

The end of course graduation afternoon is an opportunity for the trainees to reflect on their learning and encourages them to step out of their comfort zone. It’s an inspiring event and a fantastic opportunity for guests to meet trainees and hear first-hand about their ambitions for the future.

Other ways to get involved:

  • Could you give to us through your payroll giving scheme or nominate us as your charity of the year?

  • Professional support: could you offer your professional skills, for example, IT, marketing, PR or social media.
