The University of Leicester’s Dr Marie Nugent has worked with researchers and HMP Leicester to run an English pilot of Cell Block Science – a ground-breaking public engagement programme that brings STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) academics into prisons.
Six talented artists from prisons across England have won PET’s Paint-a-Postcard competition, celebrating the charity’s 30th anniversary. The cards then carried messages from over 50 serving prisoners, explaining what education meant to them.
For 30 years, we’ve been helping prisoners change their lives through education. In this blog, our Head of Fundraising Cassie outlines all the ways you can get involved and help us mark this significant birthday.
Last semester, PET’s Rosie Reynolds co-ran a partnership between three institutions: HMYOI Feltham, Royal Holloway University of London and the University of Westminster. In this article, Byron and Nicholas, two of the prison learners who took part in the module, share their experience.
