Prisoners’ lives transformed through learning.


Every prisoner a learner, every prison a place to learn.


We inspire

Through the courses we provide, the advice we give and the examples we share, we encourage our learners to reach their potential and achieve their goals.

We care

We care about the people we fund, prison staff and our team. We support people, enabling them to realise their learning ambitions and future goals.

We collaborate

We believe that by working together, we can achieve the changes we want to see. Our networks join-up prisons, universities, third sector organisations, and people with experience of prison.

We are tenacious

We strive to remove the obstacles in the way of prison learners, and work against the odds to give hope and opportunities.

We are expert

We have 30 years of experience in prison education. We share our expertise, while also learning from other experts – particularly those with lived experience.

We celebrate

We recognise the success of our learners, our partners and our team and shine a light on the, often unrecognised, people who help change others’ lives.

We are inclusive

We value everyone’s contributions and see diversity as a strength and asset. We work to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to fulfill their potential.
