LEA.P.  Learning in prison  

Learning opportunities available to detainees in prison today raise major questions about the quality of training provision available within the prison system and the very real interest that exists in rebuilding life paths.

At the heart of this Project lies a commitment to explore those good practices that have already produced excellent procedural and final results in Europe. The  study and analysis of learning opportunities considered by the partners as having achieved the greatest success will prove useful in terms of planning new interventions and for an overarching exchange of information between partner countries, and in formulating a shared framework in the planning of detainees' learning paths. For this reason, a series of seminars will be organised.

Each partner will present and examine a selection of good practices  that have been developed in their national prisons, in order to identify the methodological criteria used, the resources employed, the professional skills necessary, the level of involvement possible within the prison, the role played by the territory,  and the results, including processes of empowerment and perspectives of social re-integration.

The seminars will provide a means of information, and they will give the different partners an opportunity to compare the best learning models, with the aim of summoning up relevant guidelines.  Each partner will have an opportunity to present learning experiences adapted to different groups of detainees according to gender, generation, provenance or type of crime committed.
