Since March 2020, in line with lockdown, there has been little face-to-face contact for prison learners; PLA has continued to monitor the impact of this transition on prison learners.
Since 2019, the majority of prison education has been delivered by contracts commissioned through the Prison Education Framework, designed by the Ministry of Justice and managed by prison governors. Four providers are commissioned to provide education in prisons across England, as outlined here. Education in Wales is provided by the prison service, however some subcontracted (private) Welsh prisons use private providers.
