With many summer events cancelled POA Learning recall happier times when members running a POA Learning Centre entered prison produced veg in the local show – and came away with a bumper crop of awards.

After 20 years working for the same company, a learner from the POA Learning Hatfield Learning Centre has secured her dream job. This is thanks to the help and support from one of the team, Learner Support, Jill Baron.
POA Learning said a fond farewell to their Union Learning Rep (ULR), Vicky Hukins this week. Vicky, who was based at HMP Guys Marsh, is retiring and has been invaluable in promoting POA Learning at the establishment.
