Justice Select Committee, Inquiry into Prisons: Planning and Policies A response from the Prisoner Learning Alliance

Prisoners Education Trust and the PLA know that learning in prison works. This was recently evidenced in Justice Data Lab results, which showed a statistically significant (and sizeable) impact on reoffending levels from having received a PET grant for a distance learning course. This response therefore argue that the prison service needs to prioritise support for a wide range of learning opportunities in prisons and the response to the Committee’s questions are informed by that priority.
