Apprenticeships for prisoners
 A UK first
From 2025, the scheme is expected to be rolled out to up to 300 prisoners, who are out on license and nearing the end of their sentence.
Kier’s new apprentice said in Construction Management: “This opportunity means a lot to me, and I was over the moon when I found out I had been successful. It gives me the chance to prove to myself, my friends, family and the wider community that I am worthy and capable of being successful.
Helen Redfern, chief people officer at Kier, added: “At Kier, we’re committed to having a more diverse workforce, with colleagues who have skills from a range of backgrounds; reflecting the wider community.
“This pioneering scheme allows us to diversify our workforce further, whilst benefitting prisoners who are nearing the end of their sentence, as well as reducing the likelihood of reoffending, benefitting communities across the country.”
