ESF Project 02.064
Participation for Employment at CCF: Social inclusion through Education and Training (P4E@CCF)
A European Social Fund project benefiting the Correctional Services Agency (then, CCF). The project prepared residents for employment through education and training programmes, and trained correctional employees.
One hundred professionals and 77 residents underwent training. The project was focused on the primary needs that residents have whilst serving their sentence, facilitating social resettlement and the active inclusion of prison inmates within society and labour markets.
The project was based on the four areas of education, health, restorative justice, and housing. An important element of this project was the setting up of working groups, where both local and foreign experts gave their share to develop policy documents, standards and guidelines in line with the four main areas. This permitted key stakeholders to be directly involved in the implementation of the project.
