Maths and English in Prison Work and Training

Summary
This resource has been inspired by the innovative work carried out by HMP Kirklevington Grange and HMP Haverigg in their exploration of developing prisoners’ English and maths alongside learning vocational skills/ working practices in prison workshops and industries. The work undertaken by these prisons has, in turn, inspired other prisons to design their own projects and ‘job sheets’, specific to the departments and workshops within their prisons. This workbook begins with a short explanation of task-based or ‘job sheet’ learning and how this can encourage/ support the development of maths/ English. The following section entitled ‘Work Tasks’ includes examples of different approaches for developing workplace/ vocational and maths and English abilities in prisons.
