HMP/YOI Isis

Service delivered in prison
HMP/YOI Isis is a Category C male prison and Young Offenders Institution, located in the Thamesmead area of the Royal Borough of Greenwich. We deliver employment services in this prison.

How we help

During their induction, our information, advice and guidance (IAG) advisors help residents to identify career types and roles best matched to their interests and skills. Based on this information, as well as their prior education, work experience, strengths and areas for development, we then devise an action plan tailored to each resident. We work through the action plan with them in a follow up one-to-one, either face-to-face or using the in-cell phone system.

Working alongside the New Futures Network and other partners, we support residents or learners with their job or apprenticeship search, CV preparation and applications. We also provide disclosure advice and interview practice for residents leaving prison.

Our IAG advisors work closely with other prison teams and our partners in the community to identify the right education courses, distance learning and workshops for our learners.
