Justice Select Committee, Inquiry into Prisons: Planning and Policies A response from the Prisoner Learning Alliance

Prisoners Education Trust and the PLA know that learning in prison works. This was recently evidenced in Justice Data Lab results, which showed a statistically significant (and sizeable) impact on reoffending levels from having received a PET grant for a distance learning course. This response therefore argue that the prison service needs to prioritise support for a wide range of learning opportunities in prisons and the response to the Committee’s questions are informed by that priority.

Smart Rehabilitation: learning how to get better outcomes

To set out a blueprint for improving prison education, policy and practice,  PLA members formed three Task and Finish Groups and each group held an expert roundtable event to gather evidence from over 50 different practitioners, officers, teachers, managers, governors, organisations and learners to help inform the report.

The report was launched in Parliament on the 9th of December, 2013 where the Chief Inspector of Prisons, Nick Hardwick, gave a keynote speech outlining the importance of raising standards of education in prisons to achieve the best rehabilitation outcomes.
