Time to Learn

Julia Braggins, Jenny Talbot - Prison Reform Trust

Against a background that places the consumer at the very heart of public service reform, the Prison Reform Trust (PRT), supported by Barclays, decided to gather prisoners’ views on prison education and to use that information to influence change. More than simply a ‘consumer satisfaction survey’, Time to Learn explores the perceptions of prisoner-learners drawing on their experiences and their ideas to develop a wide range of recommendations for prison education. From the immediate and the practical through to longer-term changes in policy and culture, the recommendations drawn from this study are based on the views of prisoners.
