UZIN Sponsor HMP Onley Floor Training Scheme

UZIN Sponsor HMP Onley Floor Training Scheme

UZIN is pleased to announce the sponsorship of the Flooring Workshop and training scheme at HMP Onley.

Onley is an adult male prison located near Rugby in Warwickshire close to the Uzin Utz UK headquarters in Rugby. The floor training scheme is the first of its kind in the prison estate. The core aim is to assist in rehabilitation and help the individuals gain employment upon their release. The training involves subfloor preparation as well as carpet, vinyl, prefinished wood and luxury vinyl tiles installation.

Due to the skills shortage within the flooring industry, UZIN has always been an advocate of training and encourages apprenticeship schemes in order to help people get into the trade.

Daniel Leeson, UZIN Marketing Manager said, “When we heard of this local initiative to help rehabilitate these individuals by training them in flooring installations we were eager to help support the scheme. Fitting floors requires a remarkable amount of expertise and the prisoners are determined to turn their lives around by learning these new skills. We will be working with HMP Onley to help the trainees to gain employment upon their release and welcome any Flooring Contractors to contact us if they have any apprenticeship available.”
