The Education Challenge
Many prison leavers are trapped in a cycle of reoffending that has significant costs for communities and society, for themselves as individuals and their families. The annual cost to society of reoffending is calculated by HMPPS to be £18.1bn.
Education is proven to be a key driver in significantly reducing the risk of reoffending by prison leavers, with Dame Sally Coates’ groundbreaking review identifying it as an essential ‘engine of rehabilitation’. Despite this, opportunities to develop real-world skills using traditional classroom approaches are limited in the prison estate. This leaves prisoners unable to appropriately retrain and poorly equipped to reintegrate into society on release as Dame Sally’s findings below show.
