Graduates got their qualifications and entered employment. Graduates are team members who finish our two-year programme.

£8,060,000

Over the last 10 years, 89 team members have gone through our two-year enterprise programme in Manchester changing lives for eternity. With it costing the Government £65,000 to house a prisoner in their first year and £45,000 per year after that this has saved the Government £8.06m (based on an average three year sentence).
