Governor

Post by thomasevans10012 » Thu Oct 12, 2017 5:13 pm

Are all Governors Cambridge or Oxford educated? How much does a Governor get paid? Also do all noms/ hmpps graduates who join the graduate scheme end up as a Governor?

Talking to one of the guys on my development day who ran through the classroom stuff, he said he retired as deputy governor at Birmingham prison and he started off on the landings.
The governor at Berwyn is ex military.

So I think they take those who really want the promotions to that level even without a good education as well those who already have leader abilities.

Our military liaison started on the landings and is currently a governor, promotion through the ranks rather than direct entrants, not sure how well the new direct entry scheme will go down once they graduate with minimal experience, guessing as much as a Direct entry officer in the military after spending time at Sandhurst.
