Employment training ex-offenders

Call for expressions of interest in evaluation of The Wallich’s BOSS project (Building Opportunities Skills and Success)

The BOSS project aims to re-integrate ex-offenders into their communities by giving them the skills, qualifications, confidence and support they need to gain employment or set up their own business.

BOSS provides employability and entrepreneurship training to ex-offenders and prisoners serving sentences in south Wales at Cardiff, Swansea, Parc Bridgend, Usk and Prescoed prisons.

As well as training, participants are invited to take part in industry visits, regular work/volunteer placements, mock interviews and gaining industry-standard qualifications.

Ultimately, participants are supported to take charge of their own lives once again.

What we want to find out

  • What impact did the project make?

  • Did we achieve what we set out to achieve?

  • How did participants overcome barriers? (Illustrate findings with case studies)

  • What were the wider societal impacts of BOSS?

  • What is the return on investment?

  • Is this service valued by stakeholders?

  • How are the lives of participants different because they engaged with BOSS?

The product

We would like a comprehensive impact report that can be easily understood by the people we support,
while also clearly stating the findings.
