HMP Berwyn 

This once in a lifetime event will allow the opportunity for Fellows to explore the largest prison in the UK. There will be a tour of the prison where you will have a view of the housing block and college at HMP Berwyn. By the end of the event, you will have a better first understanding of the prison system within the UK, how the procurement approach has supported local engagement, the role of industries within prisons and insight into the life of a prisoner and prison officer.CPD 2

HMP Berwyn is the first new, public sector operated prison to be built for thirty years. At HMP Berwyn, we provide a safe, decent, secure and respectful environment for prisons and staff with a strong emphasise of rehabilitating prisoners. Further details about the prison can be found here: http://www.justice.gov.uk/contacts/prison-finder/berwyn-prison-information

Barry Hooper (Chief Commercial Officer for the Ministry of Justice) and Russ Trent (Governor at HMP Berwyn) will be presenting at the event and answering any questions you may have.
