AWARD WINNER 2012-13: Adrian is a former Prison Officer and band member who was asked to take on the role of music teacher at Ashfield. He trained in his own time and proved a gifted teacher. Wanting to do something more vocational, he then retrained, on his own initiative, as a plumbing instructor, and in 2006 set up a workshop and plumbing course in the establishment. An inspiration to colleagues and offenders, Adrian has continued to develop his own skills and expand the range of skills he teaches. (This Award is supported by the Helen Hamlyn Trust).
