UCU PeoplePlus prison education branch

UCU's PeoplePlus prison education branch (formerly A4e) was established in November 2013.

The committee meets regularly with managers to raise issues of concern to members. A network of reps allow the committee to keep in touch with members in just under 30 prisons where PeoplePlus delivers education services.


In May 2018 UCU and PeoplePlus signed a recognition deal that now allows staff to be represented by the union on key issues: UCU and prison education provider PeoplePlus agree recognition deal

Reps and contacts

These play a vital role - and we are always looking for more members to help out. Reps provide individual support to members (full training and support is provided) whereas contacts distribute information and raise our profile. For further details contact UCU national organiser, Ronnie Kershaw.
