Public Services students were this week visited by prison officers from Her Majesty’s Young Offenders Institution Wetherby (HMYOI Wetherby).

Clive and Rob, both prison officers, discussed their roles with the students, as well as giving advice for those wishing to pursue a career within the Criminal Justice System.

Prison officers work with young male offenders aged 15-18 years, to try and rehabilitate them as well as educate and support the youths to encourage them to lead a life away from crime.

Bridget Slater, Public Services tutor, said: “The talk provided a very interesting insight for the students who learned a lot about two different career paths. All students left feeling extremely inspired.”
