Supporting Students in Secure Environments

As part of our mission to open up higher education to all, we deliver courses and qualifications to students in prisons and secure environments.
This website provides information and guidance to:

  • staff in prisons and secure units who support offender learners in their study.
  • our colleagues and partners in other offender learning organisations.

Our guide for Learners in Secure Environments can be found here.

Our 'Steps to Success' booklet can be found here.
