Life Skills

What we do

Introducing basic skills, creative and vocational training to encourage prisoners to use their time to prepare for release, resettlement and employment.

How we do it

Functional Adult Literacy (FAL): A formalised literacy and numeracy programme delivered to prisoners without any formal education. The curriculum is delivered by APP-identified and trained tutors from within the prison community.

Vocational training: Life skills and vocational programmes provide prisoners with the opportunity to enter employment post-release. This helps to break the cycle of poverty and crime by equipping prisoners with practical and hands-on skills.

Libraries: The refurbishment/building of library facilities together with the training of library assistants gives the prison community a positive resource to support access to education.
