Leta 2012 je bilo v Evropski uniji približno 643.000 zapornikov. Vse od takrat število postopno narašča. Večina teh ljudi ne dosega višje, poklicne ali druge izobrazbe in dosegajo nizke ravni temeljnih zmožnosti. Izobraževanje v zaporih je pomembno pri rehabilitaciji in kasnejšo kakovostnejšo vključitev v družbo.

Izobraževanje v zaporih je pomembna tema na EPALE. Zato bo od 25. do 29. januarja Teden izobraževanja v zaporih. Spremljajte nas na EPALE, naši Facebook strani in Twitterju, ko bomo objavili zanimive vire in članke, ki so jih pripravili strokovnjaki na področju izobraževanja v zaporih.

  • Sodelujemo z Evropsko mrežo za temeljne zmožnosti (European Basic Skills Network – EBSN). Za vas pripravljamo tridnevno pisno razpravo na temo izobraževanja v zaporih. Kliknite tukaj za dostop do razprave, ki jo bo moderiral dr. Joe Giordmaina.
  • Annet Bakker, predsednica Evropsko združenje za izobraževanje v zaporih (European Prison Education Accosciation) (in učiteljica s 25-letnimi delovnimi izkušnjami), nam bo predstavila svoj pogled na izobraževanje v zaporih. 
  • Inštruktor joge James Fox je za EPALE povedal, kako mu je v enem izmed najzahtevnejših ameriških zaporov s pomočjo joge uspelo zapornike spremeniti. Povedal je tudi, kako je razvil projekt za zapore v Evropi. Ne spreglejte intervjuja, ki ga bomo kmalu objavili na EPALE, …

… ter drugih izčrpnih objav, virov in drugih vsebin na temo izobraževanja v zaporih. Bodite z nami na EPALE med 25. in 29. januarjem v Tednu izobraževanja v zaporih.

    In England (and I think the rest of the UK) it has been very difficult to gain a clear understanding of the basic skills levels (literacy/numeracy) of the prison population. I have just completed a report based on initial assessments in English and maths of every new prisoner admitted in England between August 2014-15. While this is clearly something of a snapshot it is based on over 120,000 assessments. From this it is clear that prisoners' literacy levels are very poor compared to the general adult population. However, prisoners' numeracy levels are very similar to those outside prison.

    Where a high percentage of prisoners have learning difficulties, it may be a good thought to promote a course about a different way of learning for prisoners. Not always the reason behind bad results in primary school is low intelligence or bad social backgrounds. Maybe half of those with learning difficulties who end up in prison, became frustrated in school because of a misfit of teaching and learning style.

    When one focussus on this different learning style and each student's passions one could reduce resistance angainst studying an let hesitant adult learners experience success which will help them into further works.

    A Saint Brieuc, Erasmus+ s'invite en Prison

    Une animation et un atelier artistique sur la Grèce se sont tenus à la Maison d'Arrêt de Saint Brieuc dans le cadre de la mise en application du Programme européen Erasmus+ et en particulier du projet Aristote soutenu par le député européen Breton Alain Cadec.
    Une quinzaine de participants (détenus de la Maison d'Arrêt), très motivés et particulièrement intéressés par la Grèce et la peinture, se sont adonnés avec enthousiasme à la réalisation d'un tableau commun, sous la houlette de Sylvie Le Moël  Chef de projet Aristote, de Mireille Blondel bénévole artiste amateur éclairée et de Cyrille Cantin, coordinateur socio-culturel à la Maison d'Arrêt.
    Cette œuvre commune sera valorisée auprès des instances européennes.
    La veille, Robert Blondel bénévole et apprenant en Grec moderne avait donné une conférence sur la phalange hoplitique grecque. Le matin de la session de peinture, Sylvie Le Moël, avait également assuré une présentation générale de la Grèce ( géographie, histoire, paysages, musique).
    Plusieurs participants à l'atelier artistique, dont Philippe, Benoît, Alain et Pascal ont souhaité faire don au Projet Aristote de leurs propres créations "pour rester ainsi symboliquement liés à Erasmus+ même si nous sommes actuellement cantonnés entre 4 murs" comme le précisent Benoît et Pascal. 
    Erasmus+ appuie effectivement les animations en milieu carcéral pour créer du lien social. La journée fut un moment de partage remarquable et très convivial où l'on constate que finalement grâce en ce qui concerne l'art "tout le monde est égal face à  la toile blanche"  souligne Sylvie Le Moël.

    Hi and thank you for your comment! I hope you will join our discussion next week. It will deal with the approach needed to effectively provide basic skills training (primarily literacy and numeracy, but also digital competence if possible). We will base our discussion on a Norwegian report which you can find at

    Looking forward to reading about your reactions to this approach!

    Bastoy prison is a very special setting. As an ambassador of literacy improvement possibilities of people with dyslexic like traits, I appreciate the basic skills training mentioned in the article. It uses interest in the subject and gives the oppertunities to experience success in practical challanges. This is valuable for every "student", but especially for people who may have enough intelligence to learn but for whom "regular education" didn't fit. As being a dyslexic myself, I think this could be part of the problem. It struck me that in literature it seems people with likewise traits are over representated (3x more) in prison.

    In many Dutch prisons, both the work setting is different and the education possibilities are different. In 2012 we have done a pilot in 3 prisons to implement a 6 sessions course to introduce the idea that learning basic skills can be fun. Because we didn't have the oppertunities to be as close to the daily life as in Bastoy, we introduced a Multiple Intelligence test to look at the better sides of a person; this helped people to come up with a subject they think they are good at and have interest for.: their passion. This subject is than helping to make them to stay involved in the following steps in looking at reading and writing in a different way. Giving them success experiences in this. And working to a final presentation of 3 minute on there subject of passion was maybe likewise inspiring like the daily challanges in the Bastoy case. For all of them doing a presentation gave them great pride.

    In 2014, we have dissiminated this experience in a Grundtvig workshop ALIPPE. The 16 prison teachers from 10 countries have appreciated our approach. Some of them have even translated the student book in their language (Swedish, Italian, German). More information on this:


    kind regards,

    I am a colleague of Tanja and Kari at Vox and really do agree to your statements above.

    Motivation is a strong drive for getting started with learning. Motivation is also very individual and it is crucial to experience success.
