Vocational Training in Prison | Technical Skill Building for the Incarcerated

Amatrol - Release Statistics InfographicEmployers all throughout industry face a human capital crisis that’s only going to get worse before it gets better. Thanks to a worldwide skills gap and record-low unemployment rates, companies find it increasingly difficult to hire the skilled workers they so desperately need. At the same time, there’s a large population of people who often encounter great difficulty getting hired: those with a criminal record. These people comprise a nontraditional talent pool of surprising size that could benefit from vocational training in prison.

Vocational Training in Prison Closes the Skills Gap One Second Chance at a Time

Currently, there are approximately 2.3 million Americans incarcerated. Every year, around 650,000 people re-enter society after having been incarcerated. Could this population be the solution to the skills gap?

The impact of skills training on such a huge population has tremendous potential for both the individuals and society as a whole. For example, a recent study revealed that participation in correctional education results in a 43% reduction in recidivism.

Focused Training Is Key

While skills training holds great potential for bridging the skills gap and providing hope for a better future to those re-entering society, correctional institutions must be careful to invest only in quality training programs that teach the relevant skills that industry needs. Second chances will only be successful to the extent that individuals are qualified for open jobs upon release.

Amatrol has helped correctional institutions in several states create the types of skills training programs that empower individuals to move beyond their past circumstances to build a better future. Using portable training systems with locally-installed multimedia curriculum, instructors using these programs teach incarcerated individuals the skills employers desperately need.
