Key Information

CXK delivers careers information, advice and guidance (IAG) services in nine prisons across Kent, Surrey and East Sussex; supporting prison residents with a structured pathway of education, work and training during their stay in custody.

Personal Learning Plans

A Personal Learning Plan (PLP) is produced for every resident of the prison, which identifies short, medium and long-term skills and targets for the resident to achieve.  This plan is influenced by the individual’s career aspirations and the opportunities for work in their local establishment.

The PLP considers levels of attainment in English and maths, as well as taking into account any additional learning needs. All PLPs are reviewed and updated regularly including on transfer and/or release.

Peer Mentors

As part of the service, CXK recruits, coaches, trains and manages a group of IAG peer workers who work with a number of residents to complete their Personal Learning Plans.


  • Professional and impartial careers information, advice and guidance delivered by qualified careers advisers.
  • Fully managed peer mentoring initiative.
  • Developing a structured pathway of education, work and training.
  • Working in partnership with their prison & community colleagues and other resettlement stakeholders to ensure that the required support is provided upon transfer or release.
