MK College Group awarded contract for education services at 10 additional prisons
Following recent successful negotiations with the Ministry of Justice, Milton Keynes College Group has been awarded the Prison Education Framework Contract for 10 prisons in Kent, Surrey and Sussex.
The start date for this new two-year contract is 1st April 2023, and it will run until 31 March 2025. Mobilisation is now taking place, with the College Group working to facilitate a smooth transfer of all associated colleagues.
Of the 10 prisons in this group, seven house male prisoners and three house female prisoners. This will take the College Group’s contract for prison education services from 19 to 29 prisons.
Sally Alexander, CEO and Group Principal of MK College Group said: “This growth in Prison Services is recognition of the fantastic work our teams do with the most disadvantaged learners in the country, and the College Group’s strong reputation in this specialist area.
“We’re looking forward to expanding our prison education services to these additional 10 prisons and are committed to working with colleagues and partners to build fairer futures by providing excellent educational experiences for our learners.”
