4 September 2018

A report for UCU by Professor Rosie Meek and Dr Gwen O'Connor at Royal Holloway University

This review was carried out on behalf of UCU between May and September 2018, drawing largely on responses from 288 prison educators who between them have amassed over 1000 years of experience teaching over 50 different subjects in prisons across England and Wales. It presents qualitative and quantitative data and culminates in a set of recommendations targeted at prison governors, senior managers and education providers.
