USW Senior Lecturer in Enterprise, Paul Peachey successfully pilots an innovative Prisons Enterprise Training Scheme (PETS).
The PETS concept was devised to empower inmates and encourage them to develop entrepreneurial skills which will confidently lead to them creating their own business. Paul Peachey has worked closely with Her Majesty’s Prison Services’ support and training units across Wales to develop this bespoke ‘life changing’ opportunity.
The opportunity gives inmates a potential head start on release from prison, helping them to bypass the usual barriers and issue encountered when seeking employment and hopefully result in lower re-offending rates and a positive social impact.
