For the Past 25yrs, Ryan had been spending most of it within the judicial system, Seemingly not able to change once on the outside, with the system not being able to give Ryan the right tools to be able to change his ways and to stop the revolving door that see’s many offenders upon release reoffend. So what was different this time? Ryan had heard about a Set up of the first ever Onsite CITB PearsonVue CSCS testing centre , set up in Partnership with ourselves and HMP Lincoln. What exactly did this mean ? Offenders for once would actually be Job ready in being able to get onto a construction site.
Ryan was a main character and figure of respect within A-Wing , He signed himself up along with his Wing mates onto the Lv1 Health & Safety course , which is when our paths first crossed , after listening to me talk about our delivery profile within HMP Lincoln and links into employers who were willing to offer Jobs upon release for Demolition labourers and Traffic management operatives, Ryan and his colleagues signed up to both .
This was a journey that was about to change his life and to set an example that was to revolve around the wings of the prison.
