Podcast #6: Empowering prisoners through education
In this podcast Russell Todd is joined by Clare Lloyd from the Prisoners’ Education Trust‘s Welsh project; Jamie Grundy, formerly of Cardiff Metropolitan University’s Widening Access team and now working freelance as a specialist in community development, prison education & higher education; and Mike Scott, an ex-offender and mentor. The Prisoners’ Education Trust helps prisoners access distance learning opportunities to help them enhance their chances of building a better life after release.
They discuss the extent to which prisoners constitute a community and can be worked with as such; how prisoners are supported and empowered to shape their learning pathway, both during and after their prison sentence; and Jamie and Clare explain how their partnership work on the Welsh Prisons Pilot Project has specifically sought to expand what this has involved in
