The FORINER project is looking for partners for cooperation in prison education

The FORINER project aims to provide foreign national inmates in EU prisons with access to education provided by their home institutions. The project team is now looking for European organisations involved in distance education or prison education that are interested in becoming pilot partners.

In European prisons, foreign inmates often don’t have access to education, even though they have the right to. In order to tackle this issue, the FORINER project aims to give foreign national inmates in EU prisons access to education provided by their home institutions. This project focuses particularly on finding digital and non-digital ways of providing access for foreign inmates to education.

For this purpose, the FORINER partners will be piloting test cases on distance education for foreign national inmates all over Europe. In each pilot, at least one inmate will be given access to education from their home country. More information about the pilots are given in the “Pilot information sheet”.

The FORINER project is now looking for European partners involved in distance education or prison education, that are interested in being involved in a pilot. All interested persons are invited to complete the “Pilot partner information form” and send it to the FORINER team via email as soon as possible.

For further information, here are FORINER contact details: foriner@vocvo.be (email), +32 (0) 486 69 88 49 (phone) or foriner.project (Skype).
