Chief Operating Officer for Prisons, Michelle Jarman-Howe tells us about Insights23 and highlights just a selection of events on offer to support staff working in our prisons.
Maybe you’ve heard about the HMPPS Insights festival but not sure what it’s all about? Insights23 is a festival of learning led by peers, where our staff and partners generously contribute their time, resources, and professional networks to bring you exclusive and exciting opportunities. Whether you're in England, Wales or want to attend online, we've got something for you happening during the festival which runs from Monday September 25th to Friday October 6th.
There are lots of different events on offer during the festival, whether it’s developing skills relating to prison roles or an opportunity to do something completely different within the Criminal Justice System. Here are a few examples which might resonate with you;
Above is just a small selection of over 350 events on offer for this years’ festival and they are all free to attend. Why not take a look at the website - you can see what’s on in your region or search by theme.
Events are a mix of face to face and online but you need a ticket to attend. Most events are first come, first served so take a look now and get your ticket before they go. If you'd like a chance to attend one of our exclusive 'VIP' events, simply register your details by August 23rd, 2023. We will conduct a random draw on September 1st to determine the lucky recipients.
How about talking to those at the top making the decisions and share your thoughts?
Invite Phil Copple, Director General Operations to come to your site or office, see the work you do and have an open conversation. Or you could shadow me on a site visit to an establishment. How about being part of a small group to meet our CEO, Amy Rees? You can even apply to go Inside No 10 Downing Street.
Please do take a look now and join us at the Insights Festival 2023 and be part of an enriching and inspiring experience that celebrates our work across the Criminal Justice System. I look forward to seeing you there!
