Training – Our programme

Training Programmes

Bounce Back is a training provider delivering programmes in a wide variety of construction industry skills including Painting and Decorating, Dry Lining, Scaffolding and Multiskills as well as CSCS.

Our focus is on getting people into paid employment in the construction industry. We are industry-led and train in the skills that we know are needed on site. By responding specifically to demand in this way we are well placed to give participants the best opportunities for employment and achieve our core objective of training and equipping ex-offenders with the skills and qualifications to move into the workplace.

Our aim is to provide an end-to-end solution, transitioning learners in the Criminal Justice System into employment in the Construction Industry. In addition to qualifications we also deliver CSCS training in a number of prisons and in the community. CSCS cards are the “passport” into work and without the card people cannot go on site. By obtaining the card prior to release candidates can move straight into work on leaving prison.

We seek to fill the skills gap in the construction industry and act as a “go-to” for the construction industry who know they can come to us to get much needed, enthusiastic employees.

Case Management support

We have a team of Case Managers who engage with participants while they still in prison and support them on release for up to a year, or longer, as required.

Each case manager works with the individual to help them through their journey and into work. They also work with employers to facilitate the transition into work.


We deliver skills training in various locations:

In prisons

We currently deliver training  in HMP’s Brixton, Isis, Wandsworth, Pentonville and Coldingley. We are always keen to reflect the needs of our construction partners in our training.

In the Community

We train in the community at our Head Office in Southwark in Painting and Decorating, Multiskills and Dry Lining as well as CSCS and a number of other skills. We also offer bespoke training courses for partners.

Bounce Back holds approved centre status with Cskills, City and Guilds and EAL offering a broad spectrum of training including generic and specialist construction trade disciplines.
