We currently deliver a NOCN Level 1 Sewing Course to vulnerable women in HMP Low Newton and in the Community. The course gives the learners a range of skills that will lead to employment. On completion of the course the learners will be empowered and equipped with skills around:
- Using commercial garment patterns
- Drawing patterns
- Pattern cutting
- Preparation techniques for garment construction
- Using different types of sewing machines, cutting equipment and steam press.
The learners from HMP Low Newton will be given voluntary work experience whilst in custody through ROTLs program (release on temporary license). Upon release these people will then be interviewed and if successful offered paid employment in our factory.here.
