We are working collaboratively with our colleagues across the UK and beyond as part of the Learning Together Network; a network of likeminded people from universities and prisons who are interested in educational partnerships that are individually and socially transformative.

The Network provides a platform for dialogue, support and sharing best practice. Learning Together is grounded in the transformative power of dialogical learning, so the starting point for the Network is that our ideas and practices are better when we learn from and with each other.

People in the Learning Together Network support each other in forming and sustaining transformative learning partnerships between higher education and criminal justice organisations. The Network welcomes academics, practitioners and policy makers who are committed to supporting and furthering Learning Together partnerships and working in ways that are consistent with our vision, mission, core purpose and values.

For academic year 2018 – 2019 the following organisations are delivering Learning Together partnerships. If you would like to find out more about a Learning Together partnership in our Network, please email us.
