We need to make the important measurable rather than the measurable important.

Dr Kevin Warner,

The Prisoner Learning Academic Network is a hub for researchers who work on issues relating to prisoner learning.

What is PLAN?

PLAN aims to raise the profile, quality and impact of all levels of prison education by promoting and supporting research focusing on this important area.

To do this we will:

  • Help to share research
  • Connect researchers across disciplines and countries
  • Support service users and practitioners to apply research and contribute to evidence
