Singapore: prison inmates to receive training for food and beverage sector, and help with securing jobs

A new initiative being rolled out for prison inmates will see them receiving training for roles in the food and beverage (F&B) sector, and help to secure jobs after their release. Yellow Ribbon Singapore, a statutory board under the Ministry of Home Affairs, said on Thursday that it is aiming to start with 700 inmates.

It added that it will work closely with trade associations and employers to facilitate the former offenders’ recruitment after their release, including options for traineeships or attachments.
