The alumni network is open to anyone with experience of serving time in prison. We particularly welcome people who once received funding from PET.
You will be part of a supportive network, which now totals over 50 people.
Your experience and expertise are important to us to help influence change, improve prison education and understand the impact learning has on people’s lives. The experience of former learners provide real-life examples and knowledge which helps us improve as an organisation and to inspire future learners. Ultimately, your story can help frame the public’s perception of prisoners, rehabilitation and the importance of prison education.
The advisory group is a smaller group of alumni who meet regularly in London. The group meet quarterly to tackle specific questions regarding PET policy and planning, united by a passion for education and a desire to improve the situation of future learners in prison. The group also benefit from training and development opportunities.
PET’s course funding only covers people currently serving a prison sentence. If you are an ex-prisoner and want advice or support with education please visit this page
