We are really pleased to announce that Neil Barnby, the Code4000 classroom facilitator at HMP Humber, has won a regional POOTY (Prison Officer of the Year) Award in the category "Change and Innovation". Well done Neil! It's both a credit to Neil's dedication in getting our pilot facility set up at HMP Humber to such a high standard, and to all the team at HMP Humber and HMPPS that have supported our project and heped bring it to fruition!

Neil now goes on to the national finals held later this year. We'll keep our fingers crossed for that one too! Woot!

 

Code 4000 is exactly the kind of pioneering partnership that we need to encourage. It brings together prisons, businesses and teachers to address the country's demand for digital skills and local regeneration, and giving prisoners relevant employment and a new future.

Chief Reform Officer, Catch 22

To give ex-offenders the confidence and skills they will need to get a job - and critically keep it - we need to engage prisoners in work experience and training in custody which accurately reflects the employment market in the communities they will return to. For the first time Code 4000 gives those in our custody the opportunity to engage in a training programme to become the ‘coders’ of the future.
