Uniformed and public service students from the College of West Anglia’s Wisbech campus heard about the life of a prison officer during a careers presentation.
Custodial manager Emma Wilson, from HM Prison Whitemoor, gave an insight into Her Majesty’s Prison Service (HMPS) recruitment process and outlined the day-to-day running of a modern high-security prison.
Students asked questions about pay, terms and conditions of service and what a new potential trainee officer could expect in their initial stages of training.
Adrian Kent, Level 3 uniformed services tutor at CWA Wisbech, said: “Emma took time to share both funny and moving experiences from her career to date.
“Students and staff were in stitches, as well as awestruck by the professionalism displayed daily by our serving HMPS prison officers.
