Event description

Description

It is one year on from Dame Sally Coates' Review of prison education, Unlocking Potential. Lots has changed and is proposed to change: the role of Governors in commissioning; the introduction of new OLASS funding flexibilities; technology pilots; the introduction of 'Unlocked Graduate' prison officers and blossoming prison/university partnerships, to name a few.

The Prisoner Learning Alliance (PLA) has been at the forefront of shaping the prison education policy agenda and is now focused on ensuring positive impacts are felt on the ground in prisons and that good practice is shared effectively. This year's conference is therefore called 'Doing Things Differently: A New Era for Prison Education'. We will be hearing from a range of speakers including Governors, former prisoner learners and education providers. The day will include knowledge exchange workshops where you can find out about innovative ways prisons are using the new 'engagement and progression' and 'enablers of learning' OLASS funding flexibilities.

We will celebrate the achievements of teachers, officers and peer mentors in our annual award ceremony which will be presented by X-factor winner (and former prison officer at nearby HMP Gartree) Sam Bailey! There will also be plenty of time for networking.

The Prison Learning Alliance is changing. Over the past year we have been humbled by the numbers of organisations wanting to become a member of the PLA and at the conference we will announce our exciting plans to become a more inclusive alliance.
