Providing a Path To Rehabilitation Through Self Knowledge
The primary aims of our projects are the promotion of rehabilitation through education and the development of self awareness.
The objective of the course is to help students form better relationships with the people they interact with – their friends, peers, partners and the people they work alongside.

I can remember the relentless effort I put into finding a placement on this course. I can say that my self esteem has got better, my communication skills have improved and I now have an even greater clarity as far as my aspirations for my employment goals are concerned. This is something I never imagined would happen to me. I feel a magic running through me that is fresh, light and so fulfilling. My journey doesn’t end here, it just begins.
Accepting people for how they are: the prison setting is the perfect example of the large diversity of people in the world. Although inmates might be here for hideous crimes, I’ve had practice to look past their crimes and see the emotions that we are dealing with. I’ve spoken to rapists, paedophiles and racist inmates and I’m comfortable in the knowledge that I’ve listened without the hindrance of disgust.
This project has also showed me how to view other people’s opinions and respect them. I would normally get aggressive if someone never agreed with my point or I never agreed with their point, but now I try to understand where they are coming from and why they feel the way they do. It is a better way of communicating, I believe because there is not so much tension or confrontation involved which normally turn out in conflict and not a conversation.
