Young people's project

In 2015 Prisoners' Education Trust secured funding for three years to enable us to expand the focus of our policy work on the learning needs of young people and young adults. During this time we will be monitoring the implementation of the new 30 hour education contracts brought in by the Youth Justice Board (YJB) for under-18s, as well as investigating the transition of young adults moving into adult prisons. We are also interested in how young people are then reintegrated through the gate and the continuation of their learning journeys in the community.

Throughout the project we will update this page with information to keep you updated.

For questions or more information please do contact Nina Champion, Head of Policy.
