Our activities

Research

Our Centre is undertaking an ambitious programme of research and development on education and training in the criminal justice system, including reviews of evidence, secondary data analysis and primary research, together with a programme of research-informed development activity, providing Continuing Professional Development (CPD) materials for practitioners working in prisons and with offenders in the community.

We also act as a national hub for practitioners, policy-makers and researchers, promoting, developing and disseminating best practice in education and training.

We work with a range of national networks including the Prisoner Learning Alliance, Education and Training Foundation Offender learning group, Open University Educating Criminals Centre and host an international conference, highlighting research knowledge and best practice, and identifying areas for future research, development and policy.
