Prison Education

We are the largest independent provider of training and education in prisons.

Currently working in 22 prisons, we deliver more than 600 accredited courses to thousands of prisoners. That’s more than two million hours of face-to-face learning each year.

Our high-quality courses range from basic English and maths to employer-recognised qualifications in construction and the arts – and almost everything in between.

Courses are delivered through blended learning and are flexible to cater for all types of people.

All our programmes are delivered by expert tutors and help to prepare prisoners to leave custody. We can also offer support to get free and independent advice on debt issues and help them find suitable work on release.

“The feedback from the learners has been good so far. They have found it extremely useful. We have a waiting list of men to start the course so clearly the word has spread!”
