HMP Grampian Cashback Project Graduation

On Monday 30th November HMP Grampian had their first CashBack project graduation for their under 25s. The participants received certificates for completing their SQAs in Creative Media and Employability. The event was attended by the Governor of HMP Grampian who handed out the certificates and even participated in some team building games.

 Some feedback from our Cash Back participants on their experience as their 12week course comes to an end;  “There are no words to describe how much I appreciate everything that you (staff) have done for me.”  “Before the course I had a substance misuse issue…but getting the opportunity of coming down to this course helped me get off of it.”

 As part of their Employability Award, our Cash Back participants took part in mock job interviews with James Henderson, Operations Manager Aberdeenshire from National Trust Scotland. James commented after the interviews that he was ‘very impressed’ with the participants and the standard was ‘well above his expectations’; so much so that he would have offered the job to 2 of the participants.
