Learning and Work Institute undertook research and development work assessing Get Set for Success, a personal and social development (PSD) curriculum for use in prisons.
We continued to support prison establishments delivering Get Set for Success as well as to engage other establishments. Through prison visits, we encouraged providers to adopt a ‘whole organisation approach’ to both delivery and evaluation of the programme.
We also supported prisons to integrate evaluation practices into delivery, to ensure that the impact of the course was being captured for funders, commissioners and future learners. Our continued engagement with prisons enabled us to explore barriers to delivery and evaluation, and we made suggestions for how these could be overcome.
