Code4000 teaches coding skills to people in prison, helping people with convictions to find employment upon release whilst also helping to fill the nationwide shortage in coding and technology-related skills. In this blog, Code4000’s CEO Rod Anderson talks about the impact of their workshops, as well as some of the challenges they come across in delivering their work.
When prisons are in lock-down, people spend a lot of time in their cells with no access to face-to-face activities. The InCellActivityHub contains creative, unique resources contributed by organisations and individuals for PEF providers and prison staff to download and print.
The Prisoner Learning Alliance has been campaigning for greater access to digital technology since we began. When faced with potential staff shortages and longer lock-up, the case for greater access to in-cell technology comes into its own.
