company's outsource contracts.
The scheme, which will
pay convicts the equivalent of £1.50 per day
at the new contact centre, will employ
prisoners who are either 'highly-educated'
or 'computer-literate' and will assist the
convicts in their retraining programmes,
workplace skills with the ultimate aim of
placement when released.

to clients and also that Prisoners convicted
of either fraud or robbery will not be
allowed on the scheme - but in the same

violent criminals would be eligible (!)
