Inmates to learn life skills

Main Stories

TWENTY-SIX convicted prisoners from Keravat jail have been given an opportunity unlikely to come their way even if they were not behind bars to learn a life skill that can set them up for life.
The division of education in East New Britain (ENB) opened the second phase of their Technical Vocational Education Training (TVET) for the prisoners and officers on Monday.
The programme is part of the Correctional Institute Services (CIS) rehabilitation setup.
The joint venture programme by Vunamami Farmers Training Centre and Kerevat CIS is to receive full support of the ENB administration through the division of education.
Alkan Mararang, the ENB education planner representing education adviser Hubert Wangun, said the prisoners should grab the opportunity.
He said the programme would expand over the next 10 weeks, with eight trade courses in motor mechanic, plumbing, spray painting, metal fabrication, agriculture, cooking, carpentry, tailoring, brick-laying and electrical.
