Inmates can have new dream and confidence.
We are conducting practical vocational training courses ranging from the traditional industry to the state-of-the-art industry to help inmates land a stable and decent job after being released from the prison.
Current Status of Vocational Training
We are running vocational training courses for 54 occupations during the period of six months to two years.
Occupations include car mechanic, technicians and information and technology professionals. In addition, Cheongju WomenĄŻs Correctional Institution, Yeoju Correctional Institution and Daegu Correctional Institution are designated as institutions for female inmate vocational training.
Participation in Skill Contests
We select outstanding inmates among those who completed vocational training and have them participate in skill contests. They have been getting excellent results in regional and nationwide skill contests.
