Maths and English in Prison Work and Training

Maths and English in Prison Work and Training

About

This resource, inspired by work carried out by HMP Kirklevington Grange and HMP Haverigg, will introduce you to innovative task-based learning approaches to encourage and support the development of maths and English in prison work and training.

The work undertaken by these prisons has, in turn, inspired other prisons to design their own projects and ‘job sheets’, specific to the departments and workshops within their prisons.

The resource, in the form of a workbook, begins with a short explanation of task-based or ‘job sheet’ learning and how this can encourage and support the development of maths and English in prison workshops and industries.

The ‘Work Tasks’ section provides examples of different approaches for developing workplace and vocational and maths and English skills in prisons.

OTLA North East and Cumbria
