SMART Scaffolder’s award-winning SMART Inspector mobile app has now been used to improve the safety…
We are very happy to supply free SMART Scaffolder software to Bounce Back to help in the training of offenders.
Bounce Back is a charity and a social enterprise focused on training and employment of ex-offenders. They firmly believe that everyone has the ability to change and working in several prisons, as well as with London Probation, they offer training, work experience and employment to offenders at the end of their sentences using the skills developed both in custody and on release.
Helping people re-engage with the community Bounce Back acts as a ‘bridge’ between prison and full-time employment, giving people a chance to see a career path, gain confidence, obtain a reference to move on or, in some cases, stay with our team in the social enterprise.
The Scaffolding Course
Offenders can gain the C Skills Level 2 Diploma in Scaffolding. The course is run over a twenty week period and consists of eight 3.5 hour lessons per week. With an external scaffold area, a 7 metre tower can be build and dismantled on a regular basis. Upon release there is a guaranteed position at Alandale Scaffolding.
SMART Scaffolder’s role
We were happy to donate a copy of our software to Bounce Back. Our scaffold estimating and design software allows offenders to build a model of their scaffold, check it against TG20:13, create a materials list and produce scaffold drawings. This visualisation is a great benefit to many on the course and really brings the scaffold to life.
