Training and development with particular attention to leaders within the prison education system emerged as a particularly important theme. We have individual and institutional members who have experience and expertise in engaging prison leaders in leadership development. We have previously produced material (supported and warmly welcomed by the then Prisons Minister) to help governors in commissioning education for their establishments.
We have secured funding from the Further Education Trust for Leadership to carry out research about leadership in prison education. The aim of the research will be to identify how leaders can develop a whole prison education culture, engaging all prison and contracted staff (as well as education staff) to support and promote an education agenda across all elements of the prison community and support rehabilitation.
