Prison visits:

PET staff regularly visit prisons to advise prisoners and staff on education, however we do not have the authority to offer journalists access. Contact the Ministry of Justice Press office to request a visit. We are happy to accompany the media on visits to meet our learners, as long as this has been approved by the MoJ press office.
