Take a look at this example whereby we launched a drylining academy at HMP Elmley. For some inmates, leaving prison is a daunting prospect with many estimated to re-offend, but at our academy we help inmates to get ‘job ready’ for life outside of prison. Inmates who take part learn drylining skills and receive CSCS cards, enabling them to work on construction sites.
We have launched the Willmott Dixon Building Lives Drylining Academy which will provide drylining skills and a CSCS cards, enabling them to work on construction sites.
Yassin’s path into construction
Over the past two years, Willmott Dixon has worked with Key4Life, a charity whose mission is to reduce youth re-offending and those at risk of offending. Through mentoring programmes, work experience placements and opportunities, we have supported the charity in its goal to break the cycle of crime. https://www.willmottdixon.co.uk/the-willmott-dixon-foundation/case-studies/yassins-story
