For lunch, a variety of food outlets will be available nearby. We will issue further guidance at the event.
Prison University Partnerships in Learning- PUPiL
PET is excited to be working with the growing number of prison/university partnerships across the country. These partnerships bring universities and prisons, and students and prisoners, together in a range of innovative ways. PET believes these partnerships have the potential to transform the learning experience of students both inside and outside prison, and to improve the educational opportunities we offer to those in custody and in the community.
Prisoner Learning Academic Network- PLAN
PLAN's overall aim is to raise the profile, quality and impact of all levels of prison education by promoting and supporting rigorous and collaborative research, consultation and dissemination.
We look forward to welcoming you!
