The Learning & Work Institute has been funded by HMPPS to produce a new document:
Family Learning in Prisons (FLIP) - An Evaluation Toolkit for Tutors.
The guide has been written for prison staff, tutors and providers who are delivering or commissioning family learning programmes in prisons.
The guide consists of an evaluation toolkit and description of how it can be used to evidence the impact of family learning programmes, allowing providers and commissioners in individual prisons to compare different programmes and understand what works – and what does not. If used across different prisons and programmes, data can be aggregated to facilitate a better understanding of how family learning contributes to improving the lives of offenders and their families.
Family learning is a key element of the 'Local Family Offer' that every establishment should be working towards providing - as outlined in Lord Farmers Review
The guide and data entry information is available to download below. There is also a click link to the FLIP YouTube channel
