Unlocking English

Summary This guide is for everyone working in the prison estate, as it is everyone’s responsibility to provide space and opportunity for prisoners to improve their lives through effective communication. You can read the whole guide but it is more likely that you will want to use the contents page to enable you to dip into sections that interest you most or that relate to your role. You will find teaching tips, links to the Principles for Supporting Literacy/ Language (English) Development and suggested teaching and learning activities throughout the guide, along with practical teaching and learning activities. The activities range from detailed session ideas for prison English teachers, to short activities that you can embed into other prison work, support and training. There are tips for extension and differentiation, when appropriate.
