Event description

Description

Prisoners’ Education Trust (PET) is excited to announce its upcoming third Annual Academic Symposium, bringing together academics, researchers and policy specialists with a particular interest in young people and young adults in custody. PET have recently secured funding for three years, enabling us to expand the focus of our research and policy work on the learning needs of young people and young adults in custody. We are gathering evidence to shape this work, as well as to feed clear policy recommendations into the Charlie Taylor Review of the Youth Justice System.
