Lauren Bennatto OPERATIONAL SUPPORT GRADE (OSG) HM PRISON FORD
Lauren studied the Level 3 diploma at Duchy College Stoke Climsland and is now an OSG at HM Prison Ford.
“I loved my time at Duchy College, especially the times we spent out on exercise and our visits to HMS Raleigh, where we carried out parts of the phase one training for the navy, alongside the recruits at the time. Duchy College provided me with so many life skills that I use in my current job and really improved my confidence. It also gave me an insight into many jobs that I had not
considered before, including the job that I do now. In my role as OSG I work mostly in the communications room running the radio net, the gatehouse, correspondence, where I monitor the mail, and in the wing offices answering offenders’ queries.”
