According to the MoU, Kasetsart University will provide support on knowledge development in different fields for the inmates and prison staff. This short-term vocational training is the curriculum that will enable the inmates to apply their knowledge to earn a living after release. In addition, the Federation of Thai SME has provided the inmates with vocational training matching their skills and abilities to be an effective entrepreneur. The Federation of Thai SME also has offered vocational training, both inside and outside the prisons, in order to create prison job opportunity for the inmates during incarceration and also upon release.
