Scottish Prison Service: Learning & Skills Strategy 2016 – 2021 

This publication makes clear their strategic intention to ensure that everyone in their care has the opportunity to engage in creative and flexible learning that unlocks potential, inspires change and builds individual strength.

Learning and skills provision in Scotland’s thirteen public sector prisons is currently provided through a strong partnership between the Scottish Prison Service (SPS) and two Further Education (FE) colleges: Fife College and New College Lanarkshire. These contracts will conclude in July 2017, and a new specification for learning services is currently being developed. Future requirements for the proposed New Generation Contract beginning August 2017 will shortly be published.
