Nottingham Learning Centre

The Nottingham POA Learning Centre is situated off Hucknall Road (Nottingham) in a user friendly; single story building, down from the main site at HMP Nottingham.

We share the building with the PACT Visitors Centre and our learning centre is based at the back of the building.


The learning and development opportunities are open to all staff, their families and the wider community.                                                                

At our centre, we work with you on an individual basis to identify the skills and knowledge you have gained throughout your working and personal life - We can then help you plan where you would like to go.                               

This may be to help you develop your current role, alternatively to get back into work or re-evaluate and plan for another career.                                        

Our service is bespoke to the individual but some of the services that colleagues have found really useful are:
