Dr Keri Wong

Prison education is under-valued and under-resourced.

What can be done, in practice and in policy, to improve conditions for prison educators, to attract and retain a highly qualified and committed workforce, and to offer a broad curriculum that meets the learning needs of all prisoners?


From the Prisoner Learning Alliance (PLA):

  • Fiona Flynn
  • Sarah Hartley
  • Lucy Chapman
  • Nigel Hooson
  • Theresa Moore.


This webinar will be particularly useful for those interested in criminology, sociology, psychology, prison management, prison education, criminal justice, law, crime, mental health and antisocial behaviour.

'Blue-Sky Thinking' Seminar Series on Education and Criminal Justice

This seminar is the third in this series.

The series aims to re-establish the Centre for Education and Criminal Justice as the knowledge exchange hub for practitioners, policymakers and researchers to collaborate on collecting, improving, and disseminating the best and most promising evidence and practice in the field and internationally. It gives researchers and practitioners a space to discuss the 'blue-sky thinking' in education and criminal justice that is much needed in the current system.
